The Typewriter Database 1971 Royal Swinger Serial # 8068314 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1971 Royal Swinger Serial # 8068314 A delightful, akin to the Royal Fleetwood, Royal 260 and other Royals with an AM radio tucked into the case. I like the colour scheme on this variant, with the blue ribbon cover and red plastic platen knobs. It also types well.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
