In a first for me, I bought a functional and clean typewriter. Found at a local junk shop, this 1938 Corona Sterling was hidden in its well-preserved case.
It is very clean with only minor cosmetic flaws: nicks where the carriage return lever hits the cover plate, some decal fading, a few scratches, and some tape residue. She has lustrous high gloss maroon / burgundy curves. Really breath-taking.
I will use it for research and comparison as I restore a portable Corona of a similar vintage.

I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Corona Sterling on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Corona Serial Number page and the Corona Sterling By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
