1913 Royal 5 Serial # 148536-5 1913 Royal 5 typewriter, Serial # 148536-5 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1913 Royal 5 typewriter. 2018-05-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1913 Royal 5 Serial # 148536-5 Found at one of the many antique stores frequented on Vancouver Island, this was not a machine I expected to find. Curiously this #5 was found within a month of finding a Royal #6. This particular #5 was in much better functional condition and is quite complete, having still be found with it's original wood-based case with steel lid. It still works perfectly despite not having required any maintenance from me.
