1949 Royal KMG Serial # KMG92-3903786 1949 Royal KMG typewriter, Serial # KMG92-3903786 Massimo Martelancz's 1949 Royal KMG typewriter. 2023-10-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Massimo Martelancz: 1949 Royal KMG Serial # KMG92-3903786 The great American standard typewriters of the most famous brands like Royal and Remington related to the period between the late 30's and early 50's are not easy to find today in Italy. At that time the only or almost only available brand was Olivetti, initially with the M40 and, starting from the end of the 40s, with the legendary Lexikon 80. It was therefore a pleasure for me to find this Royal KMG from 1949, which arrived in Italy as a result of the European Recovery Plan also known as the Marshall Plan of aid from the U.S.A. for the Europe reconstruction after the Second World War, as you can see from the sticker applied over the keyboard. The previous owner told me that it had been unused for over 20 years, but all it took was a minimum of lubrication and cleaning, a new ribbon and it went back to writing like the first day.

I have been an Italian typewriter collector for many many years. At that time, I loved very old typewriters from late 1800s to early 1900s. After a break of a few years I returned to collect typewriters but no longer so old, I prefer now the design of the 40's, 50's and 60's. Yes, I am an affectionate collector of Olivetti, of course, but I'm attracted to all the other brands from that period, not just Italian.
