1966 Royal 890 Serial # CV 6235646 1966 Royal 890 typewriter, Serial # CV 6235646 Brian Brumfield's 1966 Royal 890 typewriter. 2014-03-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brian Brumfield: 1966 Royal 890 Serial # CV 6235646 Picked up in Loraine, Ohio at "Tom's Collectibles" Paint is pretty beat up, but the machine is mechanically in excellent condition.

I am really baffled by this machine. There is no paper bale, and there are no clear plastic paper guides - so when you type, the only thing holding the paper to the platen is the center support. This leaves the paper setup to act like a snare drum head - yeah, super loud.

No paper bale ... No paper guides ... Louder than an amplified snare drum ... What were they thinking!?

I love machines, machining, creating things from nothing. Typewriters have struck a romantic chord in me, thanks to my oldest son, and I am working with him and the rest of our family to acquire, restore, repair many machines.
Our collection grows in fits and spurts - as the seasons change. We make a lot of acquisitions at estate sales, yard and garage sales, thrift stores, online, and through personal connections.
The machines that we don't want to keep in our own collection, we are selling through various outlets - Etsy, Square Market, and eventually on eBay - and unlike some sellers, we KNOW how to pack a machine for shipment! :-)
Brumfield & Sons Typewriters, at your service.
