VTS Opinion of Use: Amazing and Very Hard to Find, original condition! Here is a stunning LC Smith Corona 3 with double shift in scarce Channel Blue (Dark Blue). The condition is amazing! These are great little typewriters but I don't recommend them for heavy use. 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 too slow for most serious writers. The investment value of these typewriters is in the cosmetic condition, age and unique design. The entire machine has been through the 3 hour process of cleaning, oiling, adjusting and testing. Thanks for looking and please let me know if you have any questions about this beautiful, original vintage typewriter or need more pictures :-)
