1934 Royal De Luxe Serial # A378890 1934 Royal De Luxe typewriter, Serial # A378890 tom hitt's 1934 Royal De Luxe typewriter. 2018-09-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of tom hitt: 1934 Royal De Luxe Serial # A378890 'A' model portable, with the gull wing covers. This was on my wish list and it appeared on Craigslist locally. It's in great shape, though quite dry. I've always admired the look of this machine.

The only mechanical issue at the moment is that the return lever does not actually advance the paper unless I help it a little by turning the right platen knob . My guess is that the release button on the left platen knob is not engaging correctly when it is pushed all the way in. If anyone has a bright idea, I'm all ears.

Got it for $35. No case though. LOVE IT, yay! ~TH~

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.



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