1963 Royal Citadel Serial # CT5602339 1963 Royal Citadel typewriter, Serial # CT5602339 tom hitt's 1963 Royal Citadel typewriter. 2016-11-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of tom hitt: 1963 Royal Citadel Serial # CT5602339 UPDATE- I had a heaping helping of guidance on this critter, thanks to the TWDB gods. I will keep the original description as is (below), but rest assured- it is NOT a traveler, nor a traveller. It's this thing you see here. ~TH~
----------------------------------------------

OK- this one has me a bit vexed. It's a ROYAL, but my research puts it as a Halberg design from Holland. Hence, I have dropped it here under the Traveler (as opposed to the two ell "Traveller"). It's obvious these were manufactured for simple rebranding - including the Singer Scholastic.

I really like the profile that the raised ribbon cover creates. That with the sky blue/tan cover sold me on purchasing this machine. Note that I recently loaded it with a pink ribbon, just for fun.

Feel free to comment and correct me on the
provenance of these models. Thanks! ~TH~
