Found in immaculate condition at a Goodwill on half-price day. $9.98 total. Inorite?
Great typewriter, but I found the touch to be not quite what I like. I think that Royal hit the sweet spot for typing touch in the '40s and lost it again in the '50s.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.
I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal O on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal O By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
