1962 Royal Futura 800 Serial # 2A-4973900 1962 Royal Futura 800 typewriter, Serial # 2A-4973900 rock harris's 1962 Royal Futura 800 typewriter. 2015-06-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of rock harris: 1962 Royal Futura 800 Serial # 2A-4973900 My first Futura 800. I don't love the color, but I do love the condition and the feel. A good typer overall.

You can see how this is the inheritor of the earlier Royals, like the Aristocrat I also posted.

Really can't read the serial numbers on this to determine a date.

I already had this one in the DB, but I decided I like these pictures better.

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....
