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