1969 Royal 565 Serial # 565-13-9419912 1969 Royal 565 typewriter, Serial # 565-13-9419912 Ian Brumfield's 1969 Royal 565 typewriter. 2017-12-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Brumfield: 1969 Royal 565 Serial # 565-13-9419912 This machine comes from the hoard of an ex-typewriter repairman who recently passed away at the age of 96.

The machine is interesting, in that the only ribbon system equipped on either of the examples I found was carbon, exclusively. Neat oddball machine, for sure.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 20, to boot!

In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.

I also run The Daily Clipper, which while admittedly abandoned for 2 years is back up and running, soon to bring you articles on all sorts of history. Scheming and planning a website on the same domain.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal 565 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal 565 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
