1975 Royal Custom III Serial # CB9002149 1975 Royal Custom III typewriter, Serial # CB9002149 Ian Cox's 1975 Royal Custom III typewriter. 2019-05-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Cox: 1975 Royal Custom III Serial # CB9002149 This is a 1975 Royal Custom III typewriter. I have refurbished this machine with a few new parts, new ribbon, etc. It was originally a typewriter owned by my grandfather. When he passed away, I inherited it. It was in poor condition at the time with sticky keys, an old ribbon, some rust, etc. After a few days of work, I managed to get this machine looking pretty nice. The problems have all been resolved and it types very nicely. If you'd like to see a typing video with this machine, you can check it out here: https://youtu.be/roptUqu11PU

I'm a typewriter enthusiast who is working on a making a collection throughout time (at least one machine per decade). I specifically like manual typewriters, but electric typewriters are okay too :)
