Working 1940’s Royal Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in USA – Black
Working Royal vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1940’s. Regardless of such old age, the Royal machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever and the paper guide all work as intended. The Royal typewriter is fitted with a new ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
Please note that the typewriter for sale has slightly different peripheral keys on the keyboard as well as a different case.
The overall condition is excellent. The keys work and the typewriter types well. Minor cosmetic signs of age and wear but nothing major. Paper release lever does not fully release the paper. Case is in a shabby condition.
The vintage Royal typewriter would be ideal for writers and authors, especially in the creative field. It will also be a unique gift. Due to the style and the aesthetics of the Royal typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
