Portabel typewriter, 1913. Includes original case and extra's

Corona model 3

Some objects have an appeal that takes them far beyond mere function. The Corona 3 is just such a device. It could be found not only in offices, on trains and in hotel rooms, but also on World War One battlefields, up mountains and on jungle expeditions. It was also the first commercially successful typewriter and retained its appeal for nearly thirty years after the first one was made in 1912.
To use the device you take it from its purpose-made case, fold back the carriage, just like you would unfold the screen on a laptop, and you are ready to work.
Both laptop and typewriter are as light as the technology would allow at the time, with the Corona having an aluminium body. Aluminium was a new material at the time and helped bring the weight down to just over 6lbs/ 4,3 kg. Seize: 25 x 29 x 12 cm. The type bars and mechanical parts were made from steel for robustness. Corona had a reputation for toughness as well as portability. I can tell this particular Corona was made in 1913 by the serial number; 378466

Today the Corona 3 is a lovely piece of vintage technology. People are rediscovering the joy of using a manual typewriter. Since you have to get each letter right, it gives you time to think. If you are going to own a manual typewriter there is no other machine as charming as the Corona 3. It is the original ultra portable.

Famous owners: Ernest Hemmingway, Jack London, Teddy Roosevelt

The typewriter is in good condition. The case is worn. includes manual and cleaning set

    Door gebrek aan kennis van militaire uniformen bij de verkoper, kwam er een verkeerde beschrijving van de kavel. Dit werd goed opgepakt door verkoper en Catawiki en kon de aankoop geannuleerd worden.

    Geachte heer S.

    Ik begrijp dat u teleurgesteld bent in die zin dat u een andere verwachting had van het uniform.

    Echter de lengtematen van jas en broek stonden duidelijk in de advertentie vermeldt.

    Ik heb contact opgenomen met Catawiki om te overleggen hoe wij het beste tot een passende oplossing kunnen komen.

    Een mederwerker van Catawiki neemt op zeer korte termijn contact met u op ter overleg.

    Ik vertrouw erop u hiermee voldoende te hebben geïnformeerd.

    Met vriendelijke groet,


    Kringloop Zeist

    O Acordeão chegou hoje e vem com avaria, toca sem que se carregue em teclas, além que não se consegue tocar pois está sempre um som a tocar, resumo: está avariado, vou reclamar.
