1947 Royal KMM Serial # KMM14-3336277 1947 Royal KMM typewriter, Serial # KMM14-3336277 Jacob Gilliam's 1947 Royal KMM typewriter. 2018-09-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jacob Gilliam: 1947 Royal KMM Serial # KMM14-3336277 This one came from my boss for $20. He said his wife had got it and intended to fix it up and sell it... 15 years ago. He'd had it out at every garage sale since then and it'd never been sold. So now it's my favorite to use, in spite--or perhaps because--of a flaw with the lower-case "t" that you'll see in the typeface specimen, if I ever get to making one of those. You will note that the keys seem faded or darkened under the key covers. That is rather annoying. You're right. It's terrible. Fun at the same time, but as I train up, I won't be able to tell.

I am a student, father, and metrologist (gauges, not weather), Dungeon Master and typewriter tinkerer extraordinaire! I've only been at collecting and fixing since August 2018, but I already am a more confident person. I have learned a great deal from many of the wonderful resources available on the Internet, and I've met a lot of awesome people in my travels! Hopefully some folks can say the same about me!
