1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Signet Serial # S 2266383 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Signet typewriter, Serial # S 2266383 James Gifford's 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Signet typewriter. 2022-08-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1972 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Signet Serial # S 2266383 I picked this up at a local yard sale. The lady had it on for $5 and I gave her $10. It types really well, except for the @ key, so someone's obviously been trying to type emails on it. I know it's a Japanese manufacture but the keytops remind me of those on my Hermes 3000. In any case, great deal!

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
