Corona Model 3 Folding Typewriter in Original Case
Antique Corona Model 3 portable typewriter "personal writing machine"
Smith Corona last patent on back is 1910 but the model number 98911 looks like it dates it to 1916. In great shape and keys work.
All keys move freely but I am not sure if the carriage is advancing correctly after key strike or space. I am not a typewriter expert so I am not sure if there is a mechanism I have not engaged. May be a simple fix. Overall, it is a beautiful machine and still has the original case. The case shows some wear, some of the trim has come off and it looks like someone added a black tape to corners. SEE ALL PHOTOS
A beautiful piece of history and early Americana. An unbeatable gift for the writer in your family.
