1952 Royal KMG Serial # KMG 4716049 1952 Royal KMG typewriter, Serial # KMG 4716049 Gerald Ambrose's 1952 Royal KMG typewriter. 2021-04-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1952 Royal KMG Serial # KMG 4716049 This was my first desktop typewriter that I bought several years ago.

Update 1/14/2017 - Last night I decided to replace the platen on the KMG with the much nicer platen on the KHM. It was fairly easy to do, but I had to swap out the hardware on each platen on to the other one because the KMG has a 'quick-removal' type platen, where the KHM has to have some screws removed before it can be removed.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
