1968 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 10 Serial # 8854096 1968 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 10 typewriter, Serial # 8854096 Ted Munk's 1968 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 10 typewriter. 2021-08-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1968 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 10 Serial # 8854096 A Japanese Silver-Seiko electric typebar machine in groovy Royal livery. Not a terrible typewriter for an electric plastic fantastic. The motor is absolutely silent when running. It's sort of eerie not to have any humming at all when the machine is switched on.

It's also quite svelte and rather light for an electric. it carries like a small portable manual. I'm actually quite impressed with it.

Not bad for $0.00!

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
