1937 Corona 3 Serial # 1937 1937 Corona 3 typewriter, Serial # 1937 Patrick Clawson's 1937 Corona 3 typewriter. 2018-11-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Patrick Clawson: 1937 Corona 3 Serial # 1937 I bought this as a parts machine to repair the earlier model my wife bought me... and promptly realized it was in better condition. However, it was complete, and I was able to duplicate the pieces missing from the 1917 model.

I used Anthony Casillo's book for Corona 3 research. When this machine arrived, it desperately needed new feet. As it turned out, I bought them from Anthony!

College library staff (careful not to call myself a librarian without an MLS) with frequently frustrated literary ambitions. Nonetheless, I'll have the machines, if ever I break my writers' block.
