1962 Royal Futura 800 Serial # 2A-5141354 1962 Royal Futura 800 typewriter, Serial # 2A-5141354 tom hitt's 1962 Royal Futura 800 typewriter. 2015-06-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of tom hitt: 1962 Royal Futura 800 Serial # 2A-5141354 Local find at an antique shop. It has some black paint(?) drips on it. Not sure what to do about that. I am enjoying the Ebay listings for this model, some asking over $400 for it. It's nice... it's not THAT nice.

She's sound, types very well. A little more cleaning and this gal is ready for some serious wordage!

4/18/15 - just changed the ribbon to a black/red. The vibrator seems to get hung up when typing red. I'll investigate further.

I am in LOVE with the Royal ribbon cover release.  I always feel like James Bond when I press that pretty red Keystone!

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.
