Collected by Mark Naylor, indicates that 1Y and 1Z models started at serial #1 rather than #10k like later Coronas.
Hunter: Ted Munk (munk)
I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.
I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Corona Zephyr DeLuxe on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Corona Serial Number page and the Corona Zephyr DeLuxe By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
