1949 Royal KMG

Serial #KMG-3892393

This machine is worn in all the right places like a good pair of jeans. The corners are smooth and not crinkly like the sides and back. It has seen heavy use, and it works just fine. I love how the dust cover has holes where each lever pokes through.
It was priced in keychopper range, at just over $40 in an antique shop in Roanoke, VA and it was begging to belong to a writer, so I snapped it up. These things are tanks.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
