1959 Royal Heritage Serial # H4229125 1959 Royal Heritage typewriter, Serial # H4229125 Brian Hammack's 1959 Royal Heritage typewriter. 2020-03-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brian Hammack: 1959 Royal Heritage Serial # H4229125 Nice machine I found and was using as my go-to for awhile since it had no case, then gave to a date who wanted something "midcentury-modern" -- who ghosted me the next day, after sharing a picture of it on her Instagram. The portrait here is a 'before' shot when I first got it and hadn't cleaned the keys yet; I don't have a clear 'after' but you can tell in the gallery they did come clean with some window cleaner and scrubbing with a paper towel.

Got my first typewriter at age 4, a Tom Thumb. Got my first real typewriter at age 15, a Smith-Corona DeVille. Have been collecting typewriters since 2010 when I found a 1945 Smith-Corona Silent at an estate sale. Current count is around 12, half of them are in storage .
