1938 Corona Sterling Serial # 2A37646 1938 Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 2A37646 Tom Beauvais's 1938 Corona Sterling typewriter. 2018-01-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tom Beauvais: 1938 Corona Sterling Serial # 2A37646 Michigan antique mall purchase. Nice clean looking machine. Mechanically typeface was done with no problems. Ribbon not as dark, impression seemed to be too hard. Serial number runs into same problem as my other Corona Sterling (Maroon) with SN 2A43885. These Sterlings do not show these numbers on the db. My guess is 1937.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
