1961 Royal Futura 800 Serial # 2A4512465 1961 Royal Futura 800 typewriter, Serial # 2A4512465 Kenneth Kruschka's 1961 Royal Futura 800 typewriter. 2019-12-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kenneth Kruschka: 1961 Royal Futura 800 Serial # 2A4512465 I fixed a broken J keylever on this '61 Royal Futura 800 and gave the typewriter to my friend Carly Foxgrover for Christmas 2019. She has two antique typewriters "like the ones in the movies," so this will be better for her than typing on a rock-hard old platen machine.

After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!
