1961 Royal Tab-O-Matic Serial # TM4621401 1961 Royal Tab-O-Matic typewriter, Serial # TM4621401 Mark Blythe's 1961 Royal Tab-O-Matic typewriter. 2016-10-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Blythe: 1961 Royal Tab-O-Matic Serial # TM4621401 I came across this lovely machine for a good price, and I had never heard of the Tab-O-Matic before. So, I took it home an cleaned it up. It's an interesting machine with "magic columns" rather than "magic margins". The body style somewhat resembles the Futuras, but stands out with its own touch of flair. It types nicely and has tombstone shaped plastic keys. The body is metal with a nice medium blue crinkle finish.

I believe this is the first Tab-O-Matic in the database!
