The antique store owner said to me "did you see the Coronet," and I said "no" before going over to take a look. I was a bit surprised to find that it was a Comet De Luxe! I had heard about them, but never seen one in person! I believe she said that she got it from an older man and it does seem that it was not used much for it is in very nice condition. Unfortunately, the feed rollers, while not flattened, must have shrunk and the platen is slippery as it will not feed paper without help. But, this should not be too difficult to remedy.
This machine has a great mysterious look to it; the paint mixed with the body style just works so well!

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
