PRODUCT-SPECIFIC INFO

What a great-looking 84-year-old typewriter. A 1938 Green Corona Four. Yes! It’s the original finish, called Bruce Green. The exterior paint has a few chips and the art deco decals are worn. But the logo decals are in great condition. Keys have a natural yellow tint from aging but still look very nice. Comes with the original case. Lift straight up on the typewriter to remove it from the case. The handle on the case is broken. Please see the images.

The bell works and is very cute!

Uses a two-color ribbon and we’ve put fresh ribbon on the typewriter for you. The ribbon spools are original to the typewriter. When it’s time for fresh ribbon, please use the CUSTOM RIBBON option as you’ll need to send us your spools and we’ll wrap fresh ribbon on them. Note: universal ribbons will NOT fit this typewriter.

performance review: the typewriter is in working condition but we recommend it only for light, occasional use.  For letters, journaling, or special use, it works fine. I didn’t have any issues with the keystroke as the typebars felt quite nice. Imprinting is inconsistent but readable(see type sheet). The platen will need to be replaced if you want to use it for more regular use.

SOLD AS-IS. NO WARRANTY IS AVAILABLE ON THIS TYPEWRITER.

Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon, demo & tutorial videos.
