1962 Royal FP

Serial #FPS-86-7288823

This '62 FP is real clean, gleaming chrome. Cleanup was minimal. Not bad for $35 at the local antique mall. A great machine, super-duper fast, and with a very nice print quality. This one is made in Holland, and it seems every bit as nicely made as any American Royal I've met.

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
