197X Royal (Messa) Safari Serial # SA - XXXXXXX 197X Royal (Messa) Safari typewriter, Serial # SA - XXXXXXX Michael Bartelt's 197X Royal (Messa) Safari typewriter. 2021-01-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Bartelt: 197X Royal (Messa) Safari Serial # SA - XXXXXXX I failed to get the serial number on this thing before gifting it to a friend of mine, but it’s a later Safari based off the plastic brown body, a departure from the prettier 60s models. It’s another foreign Royal - like the Dutch Royalite but not nearly as well-made - this time from Portugal. My buddy loves The Beach Boys and writing poopku - haiku about, well, you can imagine. So I had to hit him with the gag gift of ALL TIME! This is his Royal POOPING Safari...
