1962 Royal All-American Serial # M5195784 1962 Royal All-American typewriter, Serial # M5195784 Mark Adams's 1962 Royal All-American typewriter. 2015-06-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Adams: 1962 Royal All-American Serial # M5195784 This Royal All-American is similar in design to the Futura and Tab-O-Matic lines. The one possible advertisement I've located for the All-American dates it to 1961 -- it sold for $95 at Goodyear Service Stores. Unfortunately, the advertisement vaguely describes the machine as a Tab-O-Matic and an All-American.

The label on the front of the machine is a simple decal. I've seen the same machine with the "All-American" part trimmed off.

Note: On my machine, the "H" key is an oddball.
