1962 Royal Royalite Serial # RL-5175431 1962 Royal Royalite typewriter, Serial # RL-5175431 LaDonna Qualtieri's 1962 Royal Royalite typewriter. 2023-11-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of LaDonna Qualtieri: 1962 Royal Royalite Serial # RL-5175431 I had a ‘59 that I really liked but couldn’t resist handing it off to a new typewriter enthusiast. This one can up for a good price and seems to need very little work so here I am with a replacement! I looked at Royalite type samples and they all seem the same up to about 1965, or so. A pica with a very distinct “Q” tail. I didn’t find a name for this typeface in the NOMDA and would like to know what it’s called.

I have many pen pals and correspond via handwritten and typed letters. I have a (painful) sitting disability and type while standing- UPDATE! I can also type on an ultraportable I set up on my bed. Typing and collecting machines with different typefaces keeps me busy and happily distracted from the difficulties in life-fountain pens, too, and I can write legibly, in cursive, while laying down. Join me on Type Pals and register for the monthly postcard exchanges. The “Cat Mews” is a quarterly publication of the philatelic topical group Cats On Stamps Study Unit (COSSU), for which I am a column contributor. My cats are Wiffle Wizard and Urushi (Rushi) Blizzard, aka the Blizzard Sisters.
