1964 Royal Empress Serial # MCE11-7753946 1964 Royal Empress typewriter, Serial # MCE11-7753946 James Grooms's 1964 Royal Empress typewriter. 2024-03-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Grooms: 1964 Royal Empress Serial # MCE11-7753946 A one owner machine that was just a few blocks away. And another under the cover clean the dust bunnies project. Three months of phone calls and finally we met. Tomorrow she types.

More cream than bright white as the photos show. Photos don't do justice to how cool this typewriter is. The platen needs redone. It slips right into the HH, so a 2 for 1 option. I bet it'd fit an FP as well???

As with many, the bug is back there somewhere due to an Underwood No. 5. My grandfather was on a small town school board and used one for this. My parents had a yellow Royal Safari that I used to index card everything, including a beer can collection. Collection syndrome clue! The long dormant tic was activated when my neighbors left a Remington Quiet Riter on the curb when they moved in circa 2010, Yes a believe it or not story is next, when a Hermes 3000 comes home with the girlfriend from work for free. Yes, free! From there the addiction is full steam. And yes, I now have a No. 5. Typewriters are the perfect blend of using one's technical skills, history and functional purpose.
