1939 Royal Varsity Serial # UB-107083 1939 Royal Varsity typewriter, Serial # UB-107083 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1939 Royal Varsity typewriter. 2014-09-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1939 Royal Varsity Serial # UB-107083 The Varsity is such a nice name for what essentially is a budget machine, however, don't let its modest price point fool you: It may have been the least expensive Royal portable at the time, but typing with the Varsity is a pure luxury. Light, and precise, the type action is superbly balanced for a machine that can't fall back on a touch control system.

Typeface size is "intermediate pica" which is "slightly larger" than regular pica.
