1954 Royal HH Serial # HHE-15-5316692 1954 Royal HH typewriter, Serial # HHE-15-5316692 Ian Brumfield's 1954 Royal HH typewriter. 2014-04-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Brumfield: 1954 Royal HH Serial # HHE-15-5316692 Got this '54 Royal HH with the wide carriage and supporting rental documentation for free. The backspace escapement is currently missing a tooth, but my parts machine will be donating its escapement to bring this one back to functionality. Aside from the frequently missing rear logo, the escapement, and a paint chip this machine is in top shape.

I've been debating as to whether I should post the parts machine on the TWDB, and I think that I might..... I'll have to get it cleaned up and put back together, but I'm hoping to have that up here as well. That means that I have two machines of mine to add, one machine that has been promised to me but not yet acquired, and one that I shall soon purchase that is arriving in the mail.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 20, to boot!

In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal HH on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal HH By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
