1930 Royal Commander Serial # CD239539 1930 Royal Commander typewriter, Serial # CD239539 Jonathan Crowe's 1930 Royal Commander typewriter. 2022-08-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Crowe: 1930 Royal Commander Serial # CD239539 A carriage-shifting base model: no paper guide, no tabs. Made in Canada.

Acquired November 2021 in non-working condition. Now operational after being sent for repair in July 2022.

Types surprisingly well. The usual Royal portable caveats apply in re the left margin and not typing too fast or you'll bunch up the letters, but for some reason it isn't as bad as that as my 1947 Quiet De Luxe or my 1958 Futura 800. Much more forgiving.
