The Typewriter Database 1955? Rooy IN Serial # 413937 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1955? Rooy IN Serial # 413937 According to one French collector, this is an SB ("Semi-Bureau"). Others call it an IN, and that is supported by the data on this database. (IN = Intermédiaire.)

I have photos of an apparently identical machine called a Standard Minor on its paper table, and a piece of advertising that refers to it by that name.
