1913 Royal 6 Serial # 151254-6 1913 Royal 6 typewriter, Serial # 151254-6 Sergei Viktorovich's 1913 Royal 6 typewriter. 2021-03-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sergei Viktorovich: 1913 Royal 6 Serial # 151254-6 This Royal cost me 500 rubles ($6.75).
According to the previous owner, once upon a time it was bought in a thrift store, then it broke and was put away on the cabinet, where it collected dust and all sorts of dirt for the last 50 years.

The breakdown is obvious - the frame of the escapement mechanism is broken in half. I don't know how this is possible - unless the typewriter was dropped or hit hardly. Along the way, losing everything related to the backspace mechanism and the bell striker.
I assembled the broken frame into metal plates and bolts - the art of welding is not mastered by me)
The lost gears from the carriage guide were made from a gear with similar parameters, purchased on Aliexpress. (Who would have thought that you could find spare parts for a hundred-year-old Royal on Ali?))))

The decals were painted over with black paint, which, moreover, was covered with a thick layer of grease. I managed to restore the outlines of the decals after washing off the layer of grease and paint, but in general, almost all of them are painted again with gold paint by my hands.
The chrome parts lost their shine, so I just cleaned them of fine rust and left them as they are.
Black coating - new paint.
Instead of the lost legs, I picked up wooden handles from Soviet cabinets))
Mechanically, the machine is well preserved. There is no rust, all the parts except the backspace are in place. It doesn't print perfectly, but it has a original Cyrillic font!! In Soviet times, someone removed the letters "Yat" and "Er", and set fractions instead of them. But I returned these signs to the keys.
Prints very easily, but to move the carriage and squeeze the register you need to be a Hercules)) Cool typewriter, I like it)

Hopefully, one day I'll find tab stops and the missing parts for the bell striker and backspace.
