1950 Royal KMG Serial # KMG19-4183434 1950 Royal KMG typewriter, Serial # KMG19-4183434 Ed Foster's 1950 Royal KMG typewriter. 2015-01-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ed Foster: 1950 Royal KMG Serial # KMG19-4183434 Simply an amazing typer, and true behemoth. Found in the back of an antique store covered in dust and grim. I understand that everyone smoked back then, but did they exhale directly onto their typewriters? At any rate, cleaned up real nice. It's actually one of the finest typing machines I have. The carriage is almost 2 feet long though, so it takes a serious commitment to use this. However, I do. I keep it at my office and use it a couple of times a week to complete forms.
