VTS Opinion of Use: Hard to find Standard Typewriter Company model!  This example has the scarce Standard Folding Typewriter decal, the Standard Typewriter Company decal and the mechanics of the Standard Folding Typewriter. When Corona bought out the very popular Standard Typewriter Company, they used reference to the original company and model under it's new Corona decals. This was done for a short time during the rebranding phase. The Corona 3 was so popular, it remained in full production with little changes to the original design until right before the end of WWII! These are great investment grade typewriters but I don't recommend them for writing a novel ;-) They are light weight and easy to carry which makes them perfect for some light typing in the park or while sitting by the lake. The overall response is a little too slow for most serious writers. The investment value of these typewriters is in the condition, scarcity and unique design. This is a consignment piece. Please see VTS News for more information.   It has been fully degreased, cleaned, adjusted, oiled, tested and comes with a new ribbon installed. Over 3 hours of a hands on process performed over several days. It's ready to type right out of the box! Thanks for looking and please let me know if you have any questions about this beautiful, original vintage typewriter or need more pictures :-)
