1947 Royal Arrow Serial # c1446328 1947 Royal Arrow typewriter, Serial # c1446328 Tas Kyprianou's 1947 Royal Arrow typewriter. 2023-01-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1947 Royal Arrow Serial # c1446328 Having recently bought my favourite typewriter and vowing not to buy another for a while, I initially (stupidly) ignored this 1947 Royal Arrow on sale in South London. A good friend persuaded me to "treat myself" (Birthday soon) and to go get it. Thank you, sir. Had you not intervened then this excellent machine would still be in Brixton and I would be sat in a puddle of regret in North London.

This Canadian, Elite-sized typer really is a Mini-Me to my KMM.. The Arrow is almost as beautiful and despite its comparative weight and size is a sheer delight to use. I have to admit, I was wary and sought advice from Facebook typewriter group gurus. I needn't have. I got lucky with an all but faultless (the paper bale rollers squeak - now fixed) machine. Highly , highly recommended.

PS. FINALLY . . . an asterisk with a hole in the middle!

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 40 machines. Nice round number. Time to stop I reckon. . .

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.
