1962 Royal Futura 800

Serial #2A-5141354

I am in LOVE with the Royal ribbon cover release.  I always feel like James Bond when I press that pretty red Keystone!

Local find at an antique shop. It has some black paint(?) drips on it. Not sure what to do about that. I am enjoying the Ebay listings for this model, some asking over $400 for it. It's nice... it's not THAT nice.

She's sound, types very well. A little more cleaning and this gal is ready for some serious wordage!

4/18/15 - just changed the ribbon to a black/red. The vibrator seems to get hung up when typing red. I'll investigate further.

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.
