1956 Royal HH Serial # HHP 5914906 1956 Royal HH typewriter, Serial # HHP 5914906 James Grooms's 1956 Royal HH typewriter. 2024-03-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Grooms: 1956 Royal HH Serial # HHP 5914906 This was sitting in the corner of the most immaculately clean and organized unfinished basement I've seen. Under a Royal cover and on a stand where it was parked mid 60s. I inserted the paper and she typed. But alas, the Royal was keeping three Remingtons company,

Sorry pickers, not today...not today.

These machines were, and still are, so good they were still being sold at dealers in the late 70s. Do you want to type? See the movie cameo link.

As with many, the bug is back there somewhere due to an Underwood No. 5. My grandfather was on a small town school board and used one for this. My parents had a yellow Royal Safari that I used to index card everything, including a beer can collection. Collection syndrome clue! The long dormant tic was activated when my neighbors left a Remington Quiet Riter on the curb when they moved in circa 2010, Yes a believe it or not story is next, when a Hermes 3000 comes home with the girlfriend from work for free. Yes, free! From there the addiction is full steam. And yes, I now have a No. 5. Typewriters are the perfect blend of using one's technical skills, history and functional purpose.
