1913 Royal 5 Serial # 171285-5 1913 Royal 5 typewriter, Serial # 171285-5 Mark Schrad's 1913 Royal 5 typewriter. 2022-08-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1913 Royal 5 Serial # 171285-5 I got this very nice 1913 Royal 5 "flatbed"/"ziggurat" from a fellow collector in the Washington, DC area in August of 2022. It was in pretty good shape to begin with, and the decals are in excellent shape, especially on the paper table. It was missing part of the right-side ribbon spool, so I cobbled one together from the top of a replacement spool from a Royal 10 from FJA. Its not perfect, but like the machine itself, it works surprisingly well.
