1948 Royal KMM Serial # KMM-3672465 1948 Royal KMM typewriter, Serial # KMM-3672465 John Cooper's 1948 Royal KMM typewriter. 2018-09-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Cooper: 1948 Royal KMM Serial # KMM-3672465 It may be unlovely, but this dinged up, battleship gray office typewriter with the cloudy key tops is the best typer I have. I can type twice as fast on it as any other machine, and it never skips or jams. The type face is a close equivalent of that on my Smith-Corona Secretarial: elite, professional, a little classy. This one was purchased directly at Ace Typewriter Co.

Resident of Portland, Oregon since 2015. Mostly interested in semi-portables of the '30s, '40s, and '50s (the late glass key top through late pre-electric eras), with a special interest in unusual or distinctive typefaces other than techno and script. Still new and always learning!



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal KMM on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal KMM By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
