1931 Royal 10 Serial # SX-1476284 1931 Royal 10 typewriter, Serial # SX-1476284 James Gifford's 1931 Royal 10 typewriter. 2018-10-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1931 Royal 10 Serial # SX-1476284 I hope I got the model/date right. I wasn't looking for an extremely heavy typer but could not pass this one up. Almost mint condition, which is amazing given its age. It was made the same year my mom was born, which makes it even more special. I will probably gift it to a friend whose son wants to be a writer. I want it to be typed on regularly. It deserves it.

Status: Typewriter Hunter
Points: 2278

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal 10 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal 10 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
