1950 Royal Arrow Serial # c2132743 1950 Royal Arrow typewriter, Serial # c2132743 Tas Kyprianou's 1950 Royal Arrow typewriter. 2023-01-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1950 Royal Arrow Serial # c2132743 Not sure if this is true of all the Royals in this range (this is my first) but my goodness this machine is by far the quietest I own. It almost sounds like the slugs are not hitting the platen. In fact, I took the platen off for cleaning (it was filthy) and it sounded almost identical. The machine is a pure pleasure to type on and worth the price I paid for it just to look at the ribbon reverse and ribbon colour selector "wings". Delighted with my purchase and a little concerned that I'll be chasing after other Royal typewriters soon.

As for that number 5 - squeee!

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 40 machines. Nice round number. Time to stop I reckon. . .

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.
