1925 Royal 10 Serial # Y-35-108177 1925 Royal 10 typewriter, Serial # Y-35-108177 Mark Schrad's 1925 Royal 10 typewriter. 2021-06-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1925 Royal 10 Serial # Y-35-108177 This Royal 10 was built in approximately 1925, and rebuilt as a "Regal" in 1935. It served in an insurance office in North Wales, PA, for many years before I got it in June of 2021. It required all sorts of unusual work: busted linkages, the blackened windows had to have their paint scraped, and a lumpy platen that took way too much effort to smooth down. In the end, though, it turned out quite nice.
