Amazing electric blue manual typewriter! Such a striking color.

This machine is a bit of a mystery, as all the identifying labels have fallen off over time. I believe it to be a 1960s/1070s Royal based on the styling and construction. Features square white keys with black accents around the base. Types in a standard serif typewriter font, and has a plastic lid that snaps over the top and doubles as a carrying case. Measures approximately 12"l by 12 1/2"d by 3 1/4"h.

The typewriter is in lovely aesthetic condition. The plastic body has no visible flaws to mention, other than the glue spots where the labels once were. Functionally, the carriage returns glides along without a hitch, letting off an endearing "ding" at the end of each line. None of the letter keys seem to stick in my testing. Three of the symbol keys on the far right (* key, the fraction key, and the @/¢ key) are a bit sticky though. It will need a fresh new ribbon if you plan to use it functionally.

Please note, this machine has not been serviced by me nor examined by a typewriter expert while in my ownership. I give my typewriters a good surface cleaning but essentially sell them as-is, thus am able to offer them for much less than other sites like www.mytypewriter.com for example, where the machines are restored by professional technicians and examined for any necessary repairs. Feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to answer them.

The typewriter will be packed and shipped with great care, and insured against loss or damage.
