A delight to type on - basket shift in a (probably just barely) prewar typer. Cosmetic wear and tear can't detract from what a joy this machine is to use. For all its Silent name, the ribbon cover rings out like a bell on every stroke, and the space bar pounds like a drum.

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.
From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Corona Silent on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Corona Serial Number page and the Corona Silent By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
