Seller: 2010connie17 (28) 100%, Location: Hialeah, Florida, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 302510084990 This vintage Corona typewriter has been in a smoke free, air-conditioned environment for over 35 years. I have tested it and it does work, though I have not used it myself in an effort to keep it in good condition. It seems this was the typewriter model that was the choice of Hemingway as well as the British Army in WWI. The ribbon is the one that was on it when I got it, so I'm sure that will need to be replaced as well as other items of refurbishment that you may chose to do. You will see details clearly in the pictures, as I tried to capture the beauty of this special typewriter as well as its' aged reality. Please feel free to ask for further information. Thank you for taking the time to look….
