The Typewriter Database 1939 Royal KMM Serial # KMM-2478231 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Harold Dodd: 1939 Royal KMM Serial # KMM-2478231 Acquired at J.C. Business Machines, Glendale, AZ With the exception of the keys being 98% - 99% faded to black, this is a real great typewriter. Even the Magic Margins work. The tech, Duane, swapped out the faded inserts in the top right two keys to see if this would work. It works good enough that, if we can't get decent period inserts, it may be what we go to. I will at least be able to see what are on the keys.

UPDATE: all but the SHIFT keys and those vertical keys in the front have restored inserts.
