1955 Royal HH

Serial #HHE-5528625

I wanted to get one of these, or at least a Royal, and I managed to do so with this beast and at a good price.

It´s pretty badly beaten on the outside and need some care, but inside all the bits and pieces are healthy and ready to deliver some good typing. Regarding the numerous scratches, I´ll leave it as it is.

Something that gives this typewriter a lot of character are two features: the palm tabulator and the magic margins. Both of them are quite pleasant to use. The "bad" part is the quite small typeface and the ribbon, but I´m on it.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
