1911 Royal 1 Serial # 65905 1911 Royal 1 typewriter, Serial # 65905 Mark Schrad's 1911 Royal 1 typewriter. 2021-06-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1911 Royal 1 Serial # 65905 I got this 1911 Royal 1 from a seller in Ambler, PA, along with a Royal 10 and a Smith-Corona Standard "flattop" in May of 2021. The seller said it was in her grandfather's insurance business in North Wales, PA since the 1800s... which is impossible as it is a 1911 machine, but let's just say she thought it was very, very old. The decals were in great shape, the rest needed quite a bit of help: a thorough cleaning, new rubber "shoes" and bale rollers, and it is back to typing like a champ!
