This is the "Improved" Corona 3, produced starting in 1923. It was widened from the original 3 model and a right set of shift keys was added. This typewriter folds as shown in the 3rd photo to fit into the case. Please take care to note the condition of this typewriter before purchase as it is being offered AS IS.

This is simply a gorgeous piece and makes me a bit sad to sit here typing this on such a boring mundane keyboard. How inspiring it must have been to sit at a machine like this!

Condition: While many things on this machine are in fantastic shape for its age, there are visible problems and may be unseen issues. The carriage does move while typing, the shift and backspace works as do the keys. The top view shows that a few of the type bars are bent somewhat, which causes them to stick. It does not come with a ribbon. There are some loose springs underneath as well.

Overall, this machine may need only minor repair but I am no typewriter expert and there may be things missing or broken that I simply don't know to look for. You are purchasing this typewriter AS IS and it is not guaranteed to work. Again, this is not a useable typewriter in its current condition.

The case is in quite bad shape but it will be shipped along with it as well.

I am always willing to ship internationally but due to the weight of this item I will have to give individual shipping quotes. If you are outside of the US and wish to have a shipping quote, please contact me and I'll get back with you ASAP.
