1962 Royal Heritage Serial # H-4675603 1962 Royal Heritage typewriter, Serial # H-4675603 Andrew Nold's 1962 Royal Heritage typewriter. 2024-01-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Andrew Nold: 1962 Royal Heritage Serial # H-4675603 The Royal Heritage is a handsome machine, with a really neat fabric case. I have found typing on this machine to be quite enjoyable, and I often write letters using it. Everything about the machine gives off a smooth and refined persona. The Royal emblem in cyan is quite fetching. The custom ribbon spools look cool, but I am a little bummed I will need to re-roll new ribbon when the time comes (This was the case for my Royal FPE as well). The typewriter locks into the case for transportation.

This beautiful machine was found by family at an estate sale for quite the steal. Something like 10 dollars. I was quite pleased to receive it, and didn't have to spend any time fixing things up. It was in perfect condition.
