1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Mercury Serial # MC 2662936 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Mercury typewriter, Serial # MC 2662936 Steven Blake's 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Mercury typewriter. 2023-09-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Blake: 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Mercury Serial # MC 2662936 This ultra-portable is a nice typer despite lacking some of the features - like a tabulator - found in the lager "portables" of the day. But then this machine is so small and (relatively) lightweight that it could fit easily in a backpack or on an airplane tray table. This 1972 edition has an attractive dark brown faux leather treatment applied to the front and top of the ribbon cover.
