1920’s Working Corona Special Manual Folding Typewriter – Case, New Ribbon – Turquoise
A very unique antique find in the world of typewriters! A “folding” turquoise Corona from the 1920’s in working condition. As you can see, the typewriter has the classic font. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guides and the paper release lever all work as intended. This magnificent Corona typewriter is fitted with a new ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original compact case which has a comfortable handle.
This folding Corona is actually smaller than it looks and was primarily used by travelling professionals such as journalists and authors. It seems that it was posted from Australia to Scotland.
The overall condition is good. All of the keys work and the Corona types well. There are minor signs of use on the metal body of the typewriter. Some keys might stick at first but will be working after a couple of taps.
The Corona Special is located in London, UK.
