1920 Royal 10 Serial # X574088 1920 Royal 10 typewriter, Serial # X574088 Jason Swisher's 1920 Royal 10 typewriter. 2016-07-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jason Swisher: 1920 Royal 10 Serial # X574088 I found this type writer at basically a yard sale (Amateur Radio ham fest) for five dollars. I could not pass it up. At the time it was missing a "T" striker and it was overall just dirty and un kept looking. I did not want to post a picture of it until it had been refurbished and properly taken care of. (it cost me more than 90 dollars) I got it repaired and I think that it was worth it. Though it still does not type letters evenly, and some of the letters stick, I think that this piece is still great to have and I am going to place it in a position of honor. I am glad I can share what I have with everyone, now I just need to figure out how to use it. I have just practiced using it for the first time so I do not have a typeface sample of it yet, I will upload one when I do though.

I love mechanical things and that includes old manual type writers
