1973 Royal Custom III Serial # CB8898040 1973 Royal Custom III typewriter, Serial # CB8898040 Richard Polt's 1973 Royal Custom III typewriter. 2016-12-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1973 Royal Custom III Serial # CB8898040 Another Royal, with numerous mechanical elements going back to the 1920s ... but this one is made in Portugal. It was never used much, but still managed to have misaligned uppercase and lowercase letters. It has an uppercase adjustment screw only on the right, for some reason.

Ahh, plastic "leather" ... the epitome of the '70s.
