This is a beautiful 1950s Royal FPE model typewriter. This is a beautiful neutral gray. This model has a classic retro look. The serial number on this machine dates it to 1958. It is a wonderful example of preserved history. These are very similar to the durable KMM's from the 1940s that were so durable that they advertised them as nearly indestructible and showed some of them being dropped out of planes!

This sports a shiny smooth paint finish that was popular for the period. The paint on this machine has the usual wear for its age some wear on the corners, light nicking, and some scuffing here and there, but nothing to distract you from this beauty. Features comfortable half moon curved plastic keys some of them have some light wear and specks here and there. It also has a wide carriage that is perfect for extra wide sheets of paper like scrapbook paper.

It's a true treasure and a classic beauty. I have cleaned, oiled, and have installed a brand new black ribbon.

This is an extremely heavy duty typewriter. I will ship this via UPS and I will take great care that it is packed properly. Since there is not a case with this model, I will double box the machine and make sure that the carriage is locked. I only use new packing materials.
