1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 10 Serial # 2137320 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 10 typewriter, Serial # 2137320 John Reilley's 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 10 typewriter. 2022-08-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Reilley: 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 10 Serial # 2137320 I love the way this machine looks, too bad it doesn't type very well. It arrived with the connecting arm between the vibrator and typebars severed which led to a few hours of reattaching and reconfiguring the vibrator rise height. Still not perfect, but the best I've managed so far. Platen is hard as a rock and has deep channels from repeated striking.

I'm a high school English teacher. Whenever I have to teach my students how to format a paper, I unleash a flock of Charger 11's at them! (they love it). I am most interested in the Brother brand, but I dabble in any and all machines.
