1965 Royal Royalite '65 Serial # 5L-6273685 1965 Royal Royalite '65 typewriter, Serial # 5L-6273685 Benjamin Esh's 1965 Royal Royalite '65 typewriter. 2024-05-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Benjamin Esh: 1965 Royal Royalite '65 Serial # 5L-6273685 A Royalite '65. I had bought this typewriter from Goodwill's online shop. This is a single ribbon color machine and lacks features like tabbing. With that said, this machine does have a metal body, metal paper guide on the left side, carriage lock, paper support and a 1 1/2 line break option.

This machine needed very little maintenance and is fully working. It did require a bit of cleaning. The design screams the mid 60's, which makes me want to listen some Rubber Soul.

I'm a software engineer in the Chicagoland area. I've been collecting "vintage" vinyl, computers, mechanical keyboards and typewriters since I was a kid. Born into an analog world, but grew up in a digital one.

My wife is a writer and I enjoy problem solving and puzzles, so naturally fixing I fell in love with fixing and maintaining typewriters and she then gets to enjoy all of these machines!
