1938 Royal O

Serial #O-806583

Found in immaculate condition at a Goodwill on half-price day. $9.98 total. Inorite?

Great typewriter, but I found the touch to be not quite what I like. I think that Royal hit the sweet spot for typing touch in the '40s and lost it again in the '50s.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
