1932 Royal 10 Serial # SX-1550450 1932 Royal 10 typewriter, Serial # SX-1550450 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1932 Royal 10 typewriter. 2018-03-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1932 Royal 10 Serial # SX-1550450 This typewriter was bought alongside a 1909 Underwood No.5 and 1928 Remington 3 Portable in 2014. This is the only typewriter of the three still in possession and it is magnificent! The Royal 10 replaced the No.5 in 1913 and ran until 1934. However, the No.10 was only offered with a segment shift for just under 3 years and are therefor by far not as common as the carriage-shift models. Well, this is one of those, and it has to be said that using one of these segment shifted No.10's is joyous. The No.10 is the machine that has made Royal Standards some of my favorite typewriters. Combined with the smooth and light segment shift, this machine is just such a pleasure to use. The machine needed significant work when first adopted. The carriage spring had seized up due to corrosion, and took some time to come back to life. At first, we considered that it had broken, and we couldn't access it as the cover is riveted. However, it turned out to be fine.
Royal 10's are amongst my (Dirk's) favourite typewriters and I recommend it regardless of the reason you are looking for a typewriter. They are great for writing and they are great for collecting. I apologize for the blurry photos but I am lacking the proper lens for these type of photos.
