V1A042xxHi Joe, I stand to be corrected, but I think that:V=Duco black1A=Jan/Feb 1930042XX is the s/nUnless 1930 sales started slowly, I'd lean towards January.S.L. Johnson may shed more light.
Leading "V" stands for the black DUCO paint job, "1A" designates Jan 1930.
Very nice photo of your Corona! And a gorgeous typeface. You may read my german typecast with english translation here. Mine has the number V2AO8524, and small bar to press the paper on the platen, that looks more advanced than yours, so I think yours might be pre-1930.
Have a comment? I'll post your comment after I read it.~Joe
