1957 Royal Aristocrat Serial # RB-374083 1957 Royal Aristocrat typewriter, Serial # RB-374083 rock harris's 1957 Royal Aristocrat typewriter. 2015-06-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of rock harris: 1957 Royal Aristocrat Serial # RB-374083 Got this from a Goodwill auction. Don't know if it's the pack job or the dirtiness or both, but the carriage is REALLY flaky. For the longest time, I thought the carriage was frozen, but a combination of hitting margin release and holding the transport latch, I was able to get it to move.

You can totally see how this is the predecessor of the Futura 800s I have by looking at everything.

But I like the Futura styling better. By a long shot.

One thing I do really like is how you flip up the paper table to get to the tab stops. I think that looks really neat.

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....
