Even upside down I can tell that's a Brother made machine. Coronado was the name Gambles Dept. Store used on thier appliances and household goods. The sewing machines were made by National up to 1954, then for years by Brother, but I've also seen a few Japanese Coronados that were not built by Brother. If you need a manual look for a Brother Project 651, same machine. I'll even wager a guess that it's a left needle machine.

Please don't worry too much. You're not the only one whose pictures post upside down or sideways. I can still see them! LOL

Oh my, were you lost? Ontonagon is in the upper.... a little more than an hour from me. Maybe you were on vacation. Anyway, nice machine. And yes, the pictures are upside down.

Default I have one, too

Got mine for free and adore it. Badged Coronado Duchess on the head, Brother Model C on the motor. Coronado 45.4106 S.M. 5.4106C. under the wheel. Gorgeous stitches and smooth operation. Straight stitches and zip zag. If it had a free arm, I would never sew with anything else.
