1947 Royal KMM Serial # KMM11-3291137 1947 Royal KMM typewriter, Serial # KMM11-3291137 David Vandergucht's 1947 Royal KMM typewriter. 2023-05-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of David Vandergucht: 1947 Royal KMM Serial # KMM11-3291137 Bought this one locally. The seller found it in his house in 1993 when he bought the place. It spent its storage life in a cabinet with a dust cover on it, which sure made a difference. It was nearly perfectly clean and required nearly nothing to have it fully operational. It's got one key for French accents, but only the "e accent aigue" and "c cedille" characters. I'm not sure why they added just those; it would be much nicer to have abilities to also type the other accents.
