This very special 1936 Corona Special came as part of a package deal. It was the reason for the package deal, actually. I got it in December 2020 in Holmeson, New Jersey. According to the sticker affixed on the side (subsequently removed without harm to the body, placed for safe keeping under the lid), it originally belonged to an Edmund J. Arsenault in Providence, RI. According to an obit found in the Providence Journal, Mr. Arsenault passed away in 2008 at the age of 83. He was a WWII veteran and was a textile weaver for the Worcester Textile Company for 40 years. After seeing the brilliant shine, the black/red panels, the inlaid silver crown, my wife declared it to be "one sexy machine"... and so it is hers now!
