1938 Royal KHM Serial # KHM-2183716 1938 Royal KHM typewriter, Serial # KHM-2183716 Erik Bruchez's 1938 Royal KHM typewriter. 2019-01-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Bruchez: 1938 Royal KHM Serial # KHM-2183716 We took a family trip a couple of hours away to get it: the machine was offered on eBay but didn't sell, and I contacted the seller separately to go buy it locally.

The machine has a few issues and oddities: some key tops were replaced and have a slightly different color. The left spool cover is missing a piece and doesn't lock. But those are minor issues. This machines has a really great action!

I ordered new decals for it but I have yet to apply them.

I started collecting my first pre-WW2 standard typewriters in 2017. Since then I have added a few machines to my collection, which now ranges from the 1890s to the 1970s. As of April 2019, I have more big standard (desktop) typewriters than portables, and a few standard electrics.
