1908 Standard Folding No. 1
This is a very early Standard Folding No. 1. Its serial number is 978, and serial numbers began around 500. This one was made in New York City prior to the company’s relocation to Groton. For an in-depth history of this typewriter, please see my blog about the history of the folding Corona. This typewriter was formerly in the collections of the Onondaga Historical Society, Peter Weil, and Dale Schellenger.
