This wonderful Matt black coloured Corona Standard portable typewriter was made in 1941 in the USA. This design replaced the early Corona models of the 30's and became the Clipper which continued to be very popular right into the 50's.
This typewriter is in working order and in a generally very good condition for its age. It has the traditional Corona style black coloured keys with silver chrome surrounds and the letters and numbers in off white. There is the Corona decal on the ribbon cover, the Standard decal on the carriage and the manufacturers details on the back (slightly faded) and the very smart and attractive black satin stripe trim on the front and the side bottom edges. This model has the slightly larger "pica" type face giving you 10 letters or characters to the inch. It also has a couple of accented keys.
The typewriter measures 28 cm wide by 30 cm deep and 11 cm high. The metal body has a matt black "crinkle" paint finish and is in a good condition with just a few small marks mainly on the ribbon cover on the left hand side.
This typewriter has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and is fitted with a new top quality American made Universal ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.
We can supply Universal typewriter ribbons from $13.90 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options. You can then rewind new ribbon onto the metal spools now in the typewriter.
It comes with its original case which is fully functional and works well, but does have some marks and wear to the covering over the wooden box and some wear to the metal chrome work on the handle fixtures. The clasp to open and close it works well and the handle is sound.
This is a highly collectable 1940's Corona Standard typewriter in a lovely condition.
