1958 Royal Futura 800 Serial # 2A-3999939 1958 Royal Futura 800 typewriter, Serial # 2A-3999939 Ryan August's 1958 Royal Futura 800 typewriter. 2018-09-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ryan August: 1958 Royal Futura 800 Serial # 2A-3999939 Got this as a companion to my 1960 pink Futura because it was a good price (and I'm familiar with how to restore it to some degree after working extensively on its mate). Haven't cleaned it up or anything yet (and one of the Tab keys is bent for now), and to be honest I wasn't in love with how the other typed in the big scheme of things compared to other typewriter, but it's kind of fun regardless. I mean, the Futuras look like a cool 1950's diner, and who doesn't like that?

As a writer, I'm always looking for new ways to explore the craft, and now my addiction to old typewriters and finding ways to actually use them has greatly inspired me
