1968 Royal Safari Serial # SA7340648 1968 Royal Safari typewriter, Serial # SA7340648 Jessica Winkowski's 1968 Royal Safari typewriter. 2019-08-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jessica Winkowski: 1968 Royal Safari Serial # SA7340648 Purchased 10/16/2018

Originally the "Antique Gold" color, I've repainted this one a lovely pinkish melon color. It was one of my first repaints and it's not perfect (there was some chipping when I put it back together), but it turned out pretty good. I'm still debating whether or not to repaint the Safari logo on the paper tray, and I'm almost afraid to take it back apart to put the sound-dampening felt back inside. I was going to sell it, but I think I might keep it around for at least a little while.

I've been collecting typewriters since 2010. I currently have 100+ machines in my possession. A little over half of them reside in my "personal" collection, while the rest are machines I intend to clean up for sale, or are long-term restoration projects (I'm looking at you, Olivers and Foxes!).
