The compact and portable Corona No 3 Typewriter was made in Chicago of the USA. The typewriter is 10.5 inches wide by 8.5 inches deep and 6 inches tall when open, when folded it measures 12 inches wide by 10 inches deep and 4.5 inches. The Corona No. 3 was an instant success when it debuted in 1912. I believe this model is from the early 1920's. The No. 3 has three banks of keys and a double carriage shift, one for capitals and the other for figures along with Glass keys and originally had a glossy black finish. This model only has one shift key on the left side of the keyboard only.
