1938 Corona Silent Serial # 2S 69785 1938 Corona Silent typewriter, Serial # 2S 69785 Martha Lea's 1938 Corona Silent typewriter. 2015-02-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Martha Lea: 1938 Corona Silent Serial # 2S 69785 Floating Shift. Touch control. Fabulous typewriter, but it's been through the wars a bit. Arrived rattling and broken, then got caught in a flood. A small knob on the right hand side of the paper bail came off and has had a temporary fix with a small bit of black Sugru. However this is a determined machine, and still types wonderfully despite a loose screw on the right hand platen knob which will occasionally fall off if I don't keep an eye on it. It did have a fantastic case, but that is now waiting to be recovered in maroon Rexine after the flood water got to it. I think there's a small silver knob missing from the left hand platen knob. And decals were rubbed off.
So a few issues, but I still count this as one of my top three favourites in my small collection.
