1947 Royal KMM Serial # KMM14-3466921 1947 Royal KMM typewriter, Serial # KMM14-3466921 Tas Kyprianou's 1947 Royal KMM typewriter. 2022-10-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1947 Royal KMM Serial # KMM14-3466921 I bought this on behalf of a friend as I'd been raving to him about how my KMM is my favourite machine.
This was clearly a loft dweller and has not been used for many years. At the moment, it doesn't feel like my 1939 KMM and for some reason despite having a much wider carriage weighs less - 14.2Kg as opposed to my 16.6Kg from 1939.
* Cleaned and polished and much happier for it. Enjoy it Paul . . .

I've offered to clean and restore the poor thing as best I can for him and will keep you updated on my findings. For now, it needs a cuddle and a cup of tea.

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.
