Another feature which makes this particular typewriter more advanced, compared to other typewriters, is the tabulator option, for typing in tabular form. In addition, there is an automatic paper lock and a longer space bar. The middle part of the typewriter is dust protected.
The Royal De Luxe typewriter was most likely manufactured specifically for use by typists in India, as the typewriter contains a symbol ‘Rs’ which was a sign for the Indian currency rupees. Also, compared to other typewriters made in the 1930s, this model was supplied with the number ‘1’ key which was quiet rare.
