1971 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Mercury Serial # MC 1628475 1971 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Mercury typewriter, Serial # MC 1628475 Mark Petersen's 1971 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Mercury typewriter. 2022-08-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1971 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Mercury Serial # MC 1628475 Purchased in Salem Virginia at a Goodwill for $4. This is my travel machine. At the time I add this it has been to Mexico, and eventually all the places it goes will be written on the case. Mediocre typewriter but not crap by any means. I see it as reasonably expendable such that I am not afraid to take it abroad but also nice enough I enjoy using it. It also fits nicely into a backpack. Made in Japan.
