1965 Royal Safari

Serial #SA6403258

Michigan antique mall purchase in old furniture factory in Grand Rapids. No Fox machines to be found. But this nice, clean Royal Safari was there. Came with case, and small manual. The label on the back says "Rugged, all-metal structural design." A heavy portable with a nice solid feel and types well--ribbon was fresh. SOLD to a friend 16Oct2017.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
