1912 Royal 5 Serial # 109497-5 1912 Royal 5 typewriter, Serial # 109497-5 Freja Ayres's 1912 Royal 5 typewriter. 2015-08-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Freja Ayres: 1912 Royal 5 Serial # 109497-5 This Royal 5 was in real bad shape. The gentleman who had it said he couldn't remember who it belonged to but that it had been in the back shed for as long as he could remember.

I cleaned it as best I could. All keys strike however the carriage does not advance. I can see the drawband came off but it hasn't broken off. It seems snagged on something but I can't take it apart to see for sure.

I think I'll leave it be until I can find someone to help out -- so far I can't find anyone willing to touch it.

The serial number is really hard to see so I used some filters and played with contrast to make it stand out.
