1949 Royal Arrow Serial # C-1922469 1949 Royal Arrow typewriter, Serial # C-1922469 John Abbott's 1949 Royal Arrow typewriter. 2020-01-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Abbott: 1949 Royal Arrow Serial # C-1922469 This looked like a war horse, but the late 1949 date on it (one of the latter serial numbers for the year) could have placed it during the Korean war, but I think it was just something that a business or home user just kept around to take care of business for them.

I started my collection back in 2017 when I found a 1993 Brother WP-1250, which was very close to the typewriter I owned and used to write letters home while I was stationed in Korea serving in the US Air Force (I later discovered it was most likely the Brother WP-1150, so I picked that up). In 2018, my wife took me to one of the local antique store and I saw an old typewriter that caught my eye. My wife purchased it for me for Christmas (a 1932 Royal 10). My wife and I decided to limit my collection to 5 typewriters, so I need to sell off my surplus.



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