1949 Royal KMG Serial # KMG-3892393 1949 Royal KMG typewriter, Serial # KMG-3892393 Mark Petersen's 1949 Royal KMG typewriter. 2014-11-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1949 Royal KMG Serial # KMG-3892393 This machine is worn in all the right places like a good pair of jeans. The corners are smooth and not crinkly like the sides and back. It has seen heavy use, and it works just fine. I love how the dust cover has holes where each lever pokes through.
It was priced in keychopper range, at just over $40 in an antique shop in Roanoke, VA and it was begging to belong to a writer, so I snapped it up. These things are tanks.
