1956 Royal HH Serial # HHP-86-5791335e 1956 Royal HH typewriter, Serial # HHP-86-5791335e Tas Kyprianou's 1956 Royal HH typewriter. 2024-02-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1956 Royal HH Serial # HHP-86-5791335e Now and then a machine comes along that captures your heart and your fingers never want to stop typing on. This HH is one of them. It shouldn't be, it's an office machine, but hiding behind that murky grey-brown body is a mighty fine, personal typer. Something about it calls me to use it and then continues to do so. Not quite as lovely to use as my beloved KMM but not far off.

(The bell trigger mechanism was broken/missing so a "McGyver" fix was needed to make the gorgeous bell sound once again - see photos.)

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 40 machines. Nice round number. Time to stop I reckon. . .

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.
