I bought a new laptop at SA. It's new to me, but not brand new. This is not a rare typewriter. What sold me on it is that the brush, oiler, key, manual, parts catalog, and even the original warranty are all there. It is a Corona model 3. The warranty card came with it, although I think the warranty has expired. Yes, it expired about 89 years ago. Damned fine print!

+2. Terrific find. It amazes me that all the original documentation is with it.

Reno, NV does not have much to offer. The only other thing I saw was a Canali suit that had a hole in it. I went to a lot of shops, 2 Salvations, 2 Goodwills, 3 Mom and Pop. I think the Big city guys got it easy. Burberrys Prorsum (pretty rare maybe) - I'm guessing pretty old, but fits great $2.00 BB golden Fleece Tie $1.76

Hate to burst your bubble, but that Burberry isn't the same "Prorsum" couture line that current with the Burberry line. That is merely an old Burberry label, and generally not as salable as the current Burberry stuff if you bought it to flip. Nice GF tie, though!

Yeah that's why I posted it. I wanted to know how old and or "good" it was.

Thanks for the info.

I'd say the Burberry is a good find. I have never had a problem flipping any Burberry. And I have never found a GF tie.

Current Prorsum line stuff will have a fabric content like this: or have a tag like this: I'd definitely not an expert and they are probably a few more variations of tags, but these are just an example. Chances are, if you don't live in NYC or Chicago, you probably won't finy any of the Prorsum line.

Nice pair of Hugo Boss brown wing tip oxfords size 8.5 on shopgoodwill.com, pg 9 of men's shoes. Also a few pair of AE's as well as some snake skin western boots.
Go get 'em!

I wonder what Antiques Roadshow would value it at?
What did you pay? Does it work?

I haven't really run it through its paces, but it seems to work. I paid $19.95.
