1955 Royal Companion

Serial #RS-3045698

I picked this up at a yard sale for $15. After oiling and a workout it types very nice. I'll post more images after I clean the covers (which are filthy).
Segment shift, pica sized type, no tabs.

The pounding typebar, having writ, moves on... unless there's a ding.

It came with the standard Royal portable case in good condition.

This is the "Senior" Companion, which I guess means that Royal was aiming for the geriatric market with this model?

A new ribbon and some oil on the vibrator fixed up most of its storage problems.

This machine must have been owned by someone named "Ed Eddy" at one time, as the previous owner was proud to scrawl on both the side of the typer and the bottom of the case. I think I'll call this typer "Eddy" from now on.
