198X Smith Corona Coronamatic 2500 Serial # 9ELB 517156S 198X Smith Corona Coronamatic 2500 typewriter, Serial # 9ELB 517156S Daniel Burgoyne's 198X Smith Corona Coronamatic 2500 typewriter. 2022-07-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Daniel Burgoyne: 198X Smith Corona Coronamatic 2500 Serial # 9ELB 517156S Found locally in Orléans, a suburb of Ottawa, from the daughter of the original owner. Beautiful dark blue body and keyboard machine in great condition. It typed without problem even after sitting many years idle in its case. Just has small flats on the rollers from sitting idle too long.

This electric typewriter uses Coronamatic cartridges with nylon or carbon film ribbons. Corrector tape comes in its own separate cartridge that is swapped for the ribbon cartridge. It types fast and effortlessly with a lovely and clear Pica 10 cpi type.

Model with datecode SC02341 made in Singapore with a QWERTY Canada French keyboard, half-spacing key and keyset tabulator. This bilingual keyboard is convenient for switching between English and French typing. This model has the best keyboard feel of all my electric typewriters.

This is a full featured portable typewriter with a 12-inch platen, paper bail with convenient arrow markers for centering paper, single to triple line spacing with halfs in-between, one-shot paper injector, and, adjustable touch and type print. This machine also feeds envelopes and cards without any issue. A joy to use when you have to get work done in English and French.

Bonjour! I am from the region of Montreal, Quebec and moved to Ottawa, Ontario in 1992.

Amateur watchmaker and machinist, I love anything mechanical, hydraulic or electric. I have restored American and Canadian clocks and small lathes, milling machines and a jig bore.

Most of my typewriters have French Canadian QWERTY keyboards, with some exception for rare finds.
