Labor Day Corona
Labor Day, a day to celebrate the worker and the end of summer- and yard sales! I live near the college town of Northfield, VT which puts on a great Labor Day celebration. I figured a college town would have to have typewriters at it's sales, and I was right! After checking four or five tag and yard sales, I followed a sign for a barn sale and came across a woman who was clearing out some things from her parent's old barn. One of those things was this mint condition Corona Four Bank from the 1920's. I figure around 1924-27 with the serial # V1A08498. I couldn't believe the price....$15 Yup, I didn't leave any zeros off, fifteen dollars. What a way to celebrate labor day!
