1953 Royal HH

Serial #HHE 5022277

This is not mould---it is some plastics-chemical migrating out from the plastic keys over time. The top two rows have had a pretty good cleaning, with soap and water and then alcohol, with more to follow. The bottom rows are as found.

the fabulous Royal HH -- It needed minor cleaning and freeing-up, except for the keytops, which need major cleaning or rejuvenation for that exuded-plasticizer problem that this era of Royals has. What you see in the pics is _after_ a hearty cleaning with soap and water and then alcohol. It types well, in elite.

That Dymo label on the spacebar is a copy of the serial number; perhaps a way to make it easier to track where employees move the equipment around the office.

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.
