1952 Royal KMG Serial # KMG15-4692142 1952 Royal KMG typewriter, Serial # KMG15-4692142 Mark Petersen's 1952 Royal KMG typewriter. 2019-06-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1952 Royal KMG Serial # KMG15-4692142 Found on craigslist in Boones Mill, Virginia. This machine was refurbished in the early 60s and given to the man I bought it from as a high school graduation gift. He used it for one assignment at Virginia Tech and his professor told him he could handwrite his papers because an engineer would have a secretary working for him. And so it went home and waited in the basement unused until I got it. And about 50 years after it's first assignment turned in to Virginia Tech I submitted another to Nikki Giovanni's poetry class. It is an excellent typer.
