1950 Royal Companion

Serial #F-2021196

Ohio antique mall purchase. Machine looked sort of ratty but when I got it home I saw lots of cobwebs so blew them out with a small can of compressed air. The label on the lower right front of the hood is actually a thin metal piece with the name Wood's Typewriter Exchange, 310 Erie St. in Toledo, Ohio, with the MA 7105 being a phone number (MA=Madison). Ribbon faded so I used carbon paper. Typed fine. The tombstone style keycaps are strange looking.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
