1960 Royal Royalite

Serial #RL-4297189

This little Royalite sports a fancy book-ish typeface.

One flaw I've noticed in the Royalite design is that the mechanism is connected to the shell by way of screws that pass through rubber feet/grommets of a particular shape. When that rubber disintegrates, the connection gets loose. I had to replace the rubber and this required some creative experimentation.
