Visible in this picture and the others around it, there is a little chip out of the paint in one of the ribbon caps. That particular cap doesn't click down without a little help, and the previous owner chipped it with the carriage return lever.

Water has gotten underneath the right shift and margin release keys, making them virtually unreadable.

The chip in the paint on the left ribbon cap was done long before I got this machine.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 20, to boot!

In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.

I also run The Daily Clipper, which while admittedly abandoned for 2 years is back up and running, soon to bring you articles on all sorts of history. Scheming and planning a website on the same domain.



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