The Typewriter Database 1969 Royal 550 Serial # 550 9272761 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Brumfield: 1969 Royal 550 Serial # 550 9272761 The very elusive Royal 550 electric desktop. Drove an hour and a half to pick it up, but since this is the only one I've ever seen I figured that it's worth it.

Very Apollo-esque.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 19, to boot!

In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.

I also run The Daily Clipper, which while admittedly abandoned for 2 years is back up and running, soon to bring you articles on all sorts of history. Scheming and planning a website on the same domain.
