Chronology of cameras Coronet 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

Although the Coronet company was strictly British, this camera of the Fifties is to be classified in the French cameras, because the French importer of the mark Coronet, Tiranty, had, since a score of years, selected to assemble under license of the English cameras, sometimes by modifying them at the point to make new models of them. It is the case here.
The formula of box was already old of almost 30 years, but was still in vogue about it in the 50s. As Goldstein had done coloured with its series of Goldy, Tiranty, renovated the concept by equipping this metal box with a very conspicuous front face.
The name of this box probably comes from its synchronization for flash (the pins are visible on the right side of the camera).

Without being rare, this camera would have tendency has to become less and less current on the secondhand trades. The sharp red of its front face attracts the glances of the amateurs, even not collectors of photo cameras.

During the acquisition of this camera, it should be checked that the handle (made of plastic) is not divided, that the metal parts and mirrors of the finders are not rusted.
