1939 Royal Arrow Serial # C-894240 1939 Royal Arrow typewriter, Serial # C-894240 Mark Petersen's 1939 Royal Arrow typewriter. 2015-02-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1939 Royal Arrow Serial # C-894240 Picked up for just a tad under $40 and cleaned up fairly nice. The shift needs adjustment but it's not bad enough I feel like fixing it. This is still a good machine to write with: I just began work on my first novel with it this week.
This is an early machine with the round rather than rectangular shift keys.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
