1918 Royal 5 Serial # 363995-5 1918 Royal 5 typewriter, Serial # 363995-5 Mark Petersen's 1918 Royal 5 typewriter. 2013-11-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1918 Royal 5 Serial # 363995-5 I had wanted a Royal flatbed for a long time and this machine was sold to me very graciously for a ludicrously low price of $40 at the 6th annual typewriter collector gathering at Herman Price's home, the Chestnut Ridge Typewriter Museum. I love typing on it, in spite of its age it is up for actual work, albeit with a slightly relaxed pace.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
