1940 Royal Aristocrat Serial # B-973819 1940 Royal Aristocrat typewriter, Serial # B-973819 Greg Lemire's 1940 Royal Aristocrat typewriter. 2015-05-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Greg Lemire: 1940 Royal Aristocrat Serial # B-973819 This was a gift from my aunt. She bought it at a yardsale for $5. I spent about a day and a half restoring it (mostly just adjusting key alignment, spring restoration, and plenty of oil) and it now functions flawlessly. The keyboard is impeccable, except for a bit of cloudiness on the inside of the "I" key. Working automatic margin and typing controls. Fully Functional.
