1907 Standard Folding No. 1
This is a very special Standard Folding No. 1. Its serial number is 634, and serial numbers began around 500. This one was made in New York City (likely in 1907) prior to the company’s relocation to Groton. For an in-depth history of this typewriter, please see my blog post about the history of the folding Corona. This typewriter was formerly in the collections of the Onondaga Historical Society, Peter Weil, and Dale Schellenger.
