1959 Royal Futura 800 Serial # 2A-4110768 1959 Royal Futura 800 typewriter, Serial # 2A-4110768 Chad Comello's 1959 Royal Futura 800 typewriter. 2018-09-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Chad Comello: 1959 Royal Futura 800 Serial # 2A-4110768 Got this one years ago but it sat in my parents' basement until recently. Its insides were filthy, but mechanically it's sound and types smoothly. My first major clean-up job; I was very happy when it was finally reassembled without a hitch. The case was missing its handle, so I wrapped a thin belt around the metal loops, which works great.
