1970 Royal Custom II Serial # NC-7922736 1970 Royal Custom II typewriter, Serial # NC-7922736 Jacob OBoyle's 1970 Royal Custom II typewriter. 2022-12-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jacob OBoyle: 1970 Royal Custom II Serial # NC-7922736 I bought this machine from a Facebook seller in a Price Chopper parking lot as my third machine, took her to college, named her Elizabeth after the queen that ruled over Shakespeare's England, typed with her for a little bit, got my picture taken with her for the school newspaper, and decided to sell her not long after. Vicious cycle, I know. She was sold to a mother looking to gift her to her daughter for Christmas, so hopefully she'll cherish her more than I did.

Description:

I bought this machine from a Facebook seller in a Price Chopper parking lot as my third machine, took her to college, named her Elizabeth after the queen that ruled over Shakespeare's England, typed with her for a little bit, got my picture taken with her for the school newspaper, and decided to sell her not long after. Vicious cycle, I know. She was sold to a mother looking to gift her to her daughter for Christmas, so hopefully she'll cherish her more than I did.
