While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
Here's some subtle advertising! Royal's keep-your-fingers-clean method of installing ribbons was to make a molded plastic one-piece pack of two enclosed ribbons with a break-away bar between them---the Twin Pak. And then they wouldn't let you forget about it, with this in-your-face ribbon color selector.
Here's a pic of the serial number; good luck discerning that second character. A close-up is in the next pic. You could make a case that the first three characters are a different typestyle from the last six and thus are a separately stamped prefix, except that the 6 and the 0 look like the same style....
Closer view of the serial number.
