1960 Royal FP Serial # FFP-13-7033774 1960 Royal FP typewriter, Serial # FFP-13-7033774 Ryan Adney's 1960 Royal FP typewriter. 2013-04-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ryan Adney: 1960 Royal FP Serial # FFP-13-7033774 Purchased at a local antique store for $10. Great typewriters and this example is nice as well. The first and only repair that I have had done by Bill Wahl of the Mesa Typewriter Exchange. The escapment wheel spring was out of wack. He replaced it with a new one. Yes, the part was new. His grandfather ordered it and it was in a parts drawer for 50 years. The part even had a tag written in his grandfather's handwriting.
