1939 Corona Zephyr Serial # 1Z3383 1939 Corona Zephyr typewriter, Serial # 1Z3383 Emily Tillman's 1939 Corona Zephyr typewriter. 2022-02-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Emily Tillman: 1939 Corona Zephyr Serial # 1Z3383 What an ebay disappointment! Always ask plenty of questions to the seller! Lesson learned, I guess. The typebar rest is a melted tar mess, hence no typeface specimen. The left shift key is busted. I doubt the ribbon lift mechanism is working properly. However, the good news is that the escapement seems ok. The carriage advances with depression of space bar. Needs professional help!

Bitten by typewriter bug during childhood. Life-long condition. No cure. Only symptom management. Happy to be here.
