1947 Royal Arrow Serial # C-1290259R 1947 Royal Arrow typewriter, Serial # C-1290259R Imre Deneer's 1947 Royal Arrow typewriter. 2016-09-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Imre Deneer: 1947 Royal Arrow Serial # C-1290259R Bought this one locally in the Netherlands.
It has a Dutch keyboard (even tough the typewriter itself is made in the U.S.).
What I like in particular, are the glass keys it has. I believe that maybe a year or two after this one was made, all machines were made with plastic keys. So this might just be one of the last glass-key typewriters made?

Anyway, it types great, even though it has been in someone's attic for over 50 years. They were glad to be rid of it, and I am very glad to have been able to add this to my collection.
