1909 Royal 1 Serial # 5575 1909 Royal 1 typewriter, Serial # 5575 Guillermo Fernandez Boan's 1909 Royal 1 typewriter. 2016-10-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 1909 Royal 1 Serial # 5575 Low serial number in this flatbed. Arrives home few hours ago, for the obligatory "first clean" (dust, bugs, etc.). The blue ribbon looks like an eighty years old one (in is not just "dried", it looks "mummified").
After all this years over its shoulders, the typewriter is complete and functional (It will benefit with a ribbon replacement). Even the drawband looks original.
There are slight differences between this one and the Royal # 1 examples from 1910 on, in this Database. The reason is the low serial number, and the "R" in the sides of the typewriter, revealing it's a very early example.
The spanish keyboard and the presence of the letter "Ñ" shows its original destination was South America. I've found It in Santa Fé, one of the argentinian States.
