The TWDB serial number list indicates Junior shells were redesigned (from the ones with a more prominent "lip" in front of the segment) in 1935 which has a beginning S/N of 33652. This one seems to have the redesigned case with an earlier S/N.

I have always loved typewriters along with other kinds of well-engineered tools and devices such as slide rules, calculators (particular HP), radios, cameras (particularly Nikons), and microscopes. In addition to appreciating their intrinsic beauty and utility, they represent "things that need to be figured out to be understood". That's how I first learned about computers and programming in the 1970s, by figuring things out for myself. It's activity in which I never seem to tire of engaging.
Although communities have arisen around other collection interests, typewriters have the advantage that those who use them also typically enjoy communicating through words, whether those words are about the machines themselves or their lives, hopes, dreams, or expressions of beauty. There's much to be appreciated here.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal Junior on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal Junior By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
