1973 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 12-GT Serial # GT 2842049 1973 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 12-GT typewriter, Serial # GT 2842049 John Abbott's 1973 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 12-GT typewriter. 2020-01-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Abbott: 1973 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 12-GT Serial # GT 2842049 I loved the color of this fellow as soon as I saw it on eBay. I am not thrilled with electrics, but I do like this. Given that I already have several SP-8000/SP-8500 typewriters, I figured it was safe to add this one to the collection.

I started my collection back in 2017 when I found a 1993 Brother WP-1250, which was very close to the typewriter I owned and used to write letters home while I was stationed in Korea serving in the US Air Force (I later discovered it was most likely the Brother WP-1150, so I picked that up). In 2018, my wife took me to one of the local antique store and I saw an old typewriter that caught my eye. My wife purchased it for me for Christmas (a 1932 Royal 10). My wife and I decided to limit my collection to 5 typewriters, so I need to sell off my surplus.
