The Typewriter Database 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Signet Serial # S2266383 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Signet Serial # S2266383 I picked this up at a local yard sale. The lady had it on for $5 and I gave her $10. It types really well, except for the @ key, so someone's obviously been trying to type emails on it. I know it's a Japanese manufacture but the keytops remind me of those on my Hermes 3000. In any case, great deal!

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.
