Re: Restored 1917 Corona 3 typewriter

Yeah, could be. Funny that not all the keys are the same color, though. But then again, maybe the ones with a lighter shade were replaced at some point.

Very interesting detail!

true.......but also maybe the orange faded from the darker orange? but your theory of the yellowing can be possible. I'm gonna put a compound on them to shine them so i will see if they are white or orange.

I think what has happened with your keys is just the paper inside aging at different rates. It seems to be common on machines like the Corona 3 and Underwood 5, which have white cardboard/paper inserts. I have never heard of a machine like that with original orange keytops, but I could be wrong
