The Corona is a portable typewriter made by Corona in approximately the 1920s.  This green color is very rare and collectible. 

In 1714, Henry Miller obtained a patent in Britain for a machine that, from the patent, appears to have been similar to a typewriter. In 1829, American William Austin Burt patented a machine called the "Typographer" which, in common with many other early machines, is listed as the "first typewriter".  By the mid-19th century, the increasing pace of business communication had created a need for mechanization of the writing process. Stenographers and telegraphers could take down information at rates up to 130 words per minute, whereas a writer with a pen was limited to a maximum of 30 words per minute (the 1853 speed record). 

The Corona is a wonderfully unique iHorn, which calls back an era of productivity which demonstrated that machines were tools that could speed progress and that well made products can not only carry their weight but stand the test of time.
