1938 Royal KHM Serial # KHM88-2205159 1938 Royal KHM typewriter, Serial # KHM88-2205159 Kewin Sanfridsson's 1938 Royal KHM typewriter. 2022-10-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kewin Sanfridsson: 1938 Royal KHM Serial # KHM88-2205159 Before I got this bulky old Royal Model KHM from 1938 I thought for a while because I am starting to run out of space for my typewriter collection but one day I could not stay away because I wanted just one more project to work on a bit. And a bit of work I sure got, I have never encountered a more dirty machine then this one was. When it was clean enough to actually inspect it a little closer I could find it had a few problems here and there but I think I finally got it all up to working conditions. It might not be quite so pretty as I thought it would get, before I cleaned it up, with a few nicks and dings, scratches etc. But cut it some slack its 84 years old for goodness sake! Back to functionality though it is missing the top part of the "Colon/Coma" typebar which contains the punctuations (this being the reason for no Colon and Coma in the typeface specimen). Otherwise it is quite a solid desktop machine. I recommend to not carry it more then necessary as it is pretty heavy when having to regularly move it around.

Hi my name is Kewin and I'm a 23 years old from Sweden. I have a few hobbies like drawing and playing guitar but I do also like myself some project here and there which is where my interest in typewriters fits in. I have always collected things through my life but I did not expect typewriters to be my next big passion in collecting. I started collecting typewriters in the beginning of 2022 and so far I have 50 of them (3 of which is currently disassembled) . I find it really enjoyable to pickup a typewriter at a thrift store/second hand and starting to clean it up and get it to a working condition to the best of my ability and knowledge. (Excuse all the dog hairs in my pictures, I do actually try to remove the hair before taking the pictures. xD) Cheers!
