The Typewriter Database 1971 Imperial (Silver-Seiko) 220 Serial # NM1661765 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1971 Imperial (Silver-Seiko) 220 Serial # NM1661765 The Imperial 220, which was manufactured by Silver-Seiko in Japan, was offered in different paint schemes. This royal blue variant is one of them, but there was also the wood grain variant, which was made infamous by the Royal Fleetwood.

It types surprisingly well, and is overall a far better typewriter than its plastic shell suggests it would be. I would never pass on an opportunity to buy one of these when offered at a thrift store price.

Identical to the Swinger model produced by Silver-Seiko for Royal that featured an AM radio built into the machine's travel case, Imperial offered its Gemini model to customers who preferred to type to tunes.
