The Typewriter Database 1938 Royal O Serial # O-806583 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1938 Royal O Serial # O-806583 Found in immaculate condition at a Goodwill on half-price day. $9.98 total. Inorite?

Great typewriter, but I found the touch to be not quite what I like. I think that Royal hit the sweet spot for typing touch in the '40s and lost it again in the '50s.

Sold!
