1978 Royal Sabre Serial # SB-9180166 1978 Royal Sabre typewriter, Serial # SB-9180166 Jack B's 1978 Royal Sabre typewriter. 2018-09-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 1978 Royal Sabre Serial # SB-9180166 The end of the line for Royal, this '69 Sabre is close to the cease of production for Royal-designed portables.

It's a very nice looking (to me, anyways) mid-sized portable that has a decent touch and good print quality. Don't let the type sample fool you, as that was done with an old blotchy ribbon. It is in practically new shape and has very few blemishes, aside from those on the back that were inflicted by the case.

Although I like the previous (Safari) generation better, this one is still very nice and well worth the $43 I paid for it.

Sold!
