1968 Royal 440 Serial # 440-11-9064840 1968 Royal 440 typewriter, Serial # 440-11-9064840 Michael Hoehne's 1968 Royal 440 typewriter. 2019-06-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1968 Royal 440 Serial # 440-11-9064840 This was very dirty at the rummage sale and it cleaned up very nicely. Several functions didn't work because of the dirt and they now work well, too. It's an unusual gold color. The 440s are very large and over 32 pounds but they work sooo well, with the typical Royal office machine solid feel.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
