1938 Corona 3 Serial # 696195 1938 Corona 3 typewriter, Serial # 696195 Mark Schrad's 1938 Corona 3 typewriter. 2021-01-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1938 Corona 3 Serial # 696195 This is a really late, late folding Corona 3, made in 1938 with the storm-clouds of war gathering over Europe. It has the double shifts on either side, and the backspace key had fallen off when I found it--in Seaside Park, New Jersey--in March of 2019. (March is NOT Jersey Shore season. It was quite raw.) However, the area seems to have rebuilt nicely following the devastation of Superstorm Sandy.
