1968 Royal 440 Serial # 11-9031158 1968 Royal 440 typewriter, Serial # 11-9031158 Rolf Boone's 1968 Royal 440 typewriter. 2021-09-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Rolf Boone: 1968 Royal 440 Serial # 11-9031158 Big Blue: A Royal 440 with a 6-characters per inch typeface. One challenge: it has a super finicky line lock mechanism. That thin plate underneath the typewriter refuses to hold its position. Any thoughts out there on how best to stabilize it?
