1932 Royal Signet Serial # E8545 1932 Royal Signet typewriter, Serial # E8545 Jonathan Mitchell's 1932 Royal Signet typewriter. 2014-12-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Mitchell: 1932 Royal Signet Serial # E8545 A depression era typewriter that I picked up out of curiosity.

It lacks a shift key, but also has a san-serif font, slightly italicized, which I read that Royal said was designed to make it as readable as possible (not a direct quote).

It is certainly a cute little typewriter, and entertaining to type on.

A writer and beginner collector/restorer of typewriters. I'd always written a few pages a day, been sort of a habit for a number of years now, and I saw a few typewriters in movies and loved the sound they made, so I decided to buy one to see what it was like.

Ended up with a Olivetti Lettera 22, and after writing about a hundred pages with it, I was hooked.
