1982 Royal Jubilee Serial # 20129020 1982 Royal Jubilee typewriter, Serial # 20129020 LaDonna Qualtieri's 1982 Royal Jubilee typewriter. 2024-03-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of LaDonna Qualtieri: 1982 Royal Jubilee Serial # 20129020 RAINBOW BRITE vibes! The carriage knob silver-tone covers came off. I found one lodged near the clamshell “hinge”- it made opening the case very difficult. I have yet to find the other one but I suspect it could be inhibiting operation of this new-looking machine. It powers on and the keys work. The carriage catches near the center. Carriage return is intermittent and sluggish. Please let me know if I’m in the correct Royal category.
Note: I am assuming this is also referred to as a Jubilee 10 (although it is not exteriorly noted with the model name) simply because there is a wider carriage model called “Jubilee 12.”

New ribbon/spools foolishly purchased before testing the machine. Oh well! See the residual glue on the carriage knob? The radio dial looking cap is inside this machine somewhere!

I have many pen pals and correspond via handwritten and typed letters. I have a (painful) sitting disability and type while standing- UPDATE! I can also type on an ultraportable I set up on my bed. Typing and collecting machines with different typefaces keeps me busy and happily distracted from the difficulties in life-fountain pens, too, and I can write legibly, in cursive, while laying down. Join me on Type Pals and register for the monthly postcard exchanges. The “Cat Mews” is a quarterly publication of the philatelic topical group Cats On Stamps Study Unit (COSSU), for which I am a column contributor. My cats are Wiffle Wizard and Urushi (Rushi) Blizzard, aka the Blizzard Sisters.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal Jubilee on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal Jubilee By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
