1942 Royal KMM Serial # KMM14-2931507 1942 Royal KMM typewriter, Serial # KMM14-2931507 Jack B's 1942 Royal KMM typewriter. 2016-06-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 1942 Royal KMM Serial # KMM14-2931507 When I first spotted this large-carriage standard, I was convinced it was a very dirty KMG. Once I took it home and dusted off the SN, it became clear that this was a repainted KMM that was produced only a few months before production stopped to help the war effort... is it possible that it was repainted and used during the war, by government offices? Probably not, but there really is no way to prove it.

Surprisingly, everything works as long as I stick something where there front feet should be so that it is level.

Sold!
