Lovely, pristine, and a touch of art deco. No corrosion anywhere, even the case latches are shiny like new. Pleasant to use. Must have been owned by a little old lady in Phoenix, Arizona, only on Sundays. One of my main go-to daily typers.

Almost at the same instant that the idea occurred to me of how much fun it might be for my children (7) and grandchildren (13) to get letters - real letters in the mail - i went digging through the dusty nether regions of our storage area to pull out my beloved 1957 Olympia SM3 Portable and the old Royal 10 I'd rescued from a neighbor's garbage can in the 1960's. Refurbishing them triggered a typewriter obsession. Don't tell my wife, but i believe there are now about 20 of them.
I love their looks, their intricate and precise mechanisms, and dinking around in the workshop tuning them up and bringing them back to life. i also, unfortunately, love the thrill of the hunt on eBay. But all of them are put to use for correspondence and my new hobby of decorated art letters. And sometimes they even inspire a bit of poetry.
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.
