1942 Royal KMM Serial # KMM 18-2975794 1942 Royal KMM typewriter, Serial # KMM 18-2975794 Liz Alexander's 1942 Royal KMM typewriter. 2017-11-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Liz Alexander: 1942 Royal KMM Serial # KMM 18-2975794 I found this in the depths of a local antique shop. I think the extra-long carriage was used for large ledgers, but I have no other information on it.

Dubbed "Big Bertha", I plan to clean her up and take some good pictures of her. I especially love her glass keys!

Any extra info on this unusual machine that anyone may have would be greatly appreciated!

Hi! I'm an unpublished author who has fallen in love with typewriters! I'm married and in my late 30s. Looking to improve on my collection, and help update the database with my finds.
