1946 Royal KMM Serial # KMM-3189447 1946 Royal KMM typewriter, Serial # KMM-3189447 Jer Wal's 1946 Royal KMM typewriter. 2015-09-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jer Wal: 1946 Royal KMM Serial # KMM-3189447 A newsroom standard! Solid typer with a pica sized font and all the features you could want. Great print image. Keyboard touch is a little heavier than my KHM but it's loosening up with a little oil on important parts. I bought it at a yard sale for $40. It came with an official Royal dust cover. It looks like it had been unused for a very long time. The carriage rails were very rusty, but I'm oiling and wiping out the rust now.

The pounding typebar, having writ, moves on... unless there's a ding.
