1958 Royal Diana Serial # 65376 1958 Royal Diana typewriter, Serial # 65376 Stuart Heath's 1958 Royal Diana typewriter. 2019-07-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Stuart Heath: 1958 Royal Diana Serial # 65376 This must be from near the end of the German production of these machines. It has a curious Anglo-German(?) keyboard layout that seems to have been subject to some post-production tinkering: the '; :' key to the right of the 'L' has a misaligned slug that doesn't match the others - plus there are already semicolon and colon characters elsewhere. The type is pica.
