This Dutch-made portable is somewhat similar in size to the U.S.-made Royal Futura 800 but has a different body style.. It also has Royal's "Magic Margins" but otherwise is different mechanically. S/N DTP 119706 indicates it likely was made in early 1960s.

I have collected typewriters since the early 1970s. My first collectible machine was a Mignon, but I also had everyday typers then, first a Voss ST-24 and an Olivetti Praxis 48, and then a Hermes 3000 and a Hermes 10. Over the last decade or so, I've turned my focus from early machines (Lambert, Blickensderfer, Hammond, Smith-Premier, etc.) to portables.

Besides typewriters, I also am avid about Studebakers, and have had a 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk since 1979.
