still - a classy looking machine in administrative green.
I like the protective wings under the carriage ends. Very nice machine!
Well, I *didn't* want one until you started putting up pr0ny pictures of one. Sigh.How apt that an Administrator is used to do... administration.
Very nice machine! I like Royal's Magic Margin feature too, but I've always thought they should have included an automatic right margin feature on my Arrow portable; does yours have it? Or the Magic Margin works only on the left margin of the document?
The Magic Margin works on both sides. It's a little easier to use on the left, though -- you just push the carriage to the left while operating the MM, whereas on the right you have to hold the carriage release at the same time.
Handsome typewriter. I like the circular molding underneath the typebars cover where the ribbon spools are, makes sense. Never knew such a model existed, never knew there was a German Royal for that matter. I learn a new thing each time I visit here, thanks for sharing, Richard.
That is one fantastic typewriter. I like everything about it. It has such a nice color scheme with the green housing and keys. The typeface is very nice and clean and with the blue ribbon it becomes a very exquisite typewriter.
Everything's coming up Royals! :D
Must be Spring -- the Typosphere seems to be absolutely blooming these days with reports of new-found machines!
Beautiful typewriter, and your photos are gorgeous and professional-looking as always.
Definitely wouldn't have guessed that's a Royal apart from - you know - the giant ROYAL badge on it. Nice find.
It's a really beautiful machine. I didn't even know this model existed. Thanks for sharing.
I never saw this model of typewriter, looks great!
That's a high class casting for a ribbon cover!
Looks practically unused! Great find.
I dig it!. We I was growing up, we had a Chevy Malibu station wagon almost that same color.
Found one at an estate sale yesterday! You hit the nail on the head with "solid, smooth and snappy." Mine has a lazy h and the feet are a total loss. But the little typing I was able to do before handing it over to Bill for repair was really nice. I just need to work out how I'm going to manufacture gray rubber feet...
Congratulations! These are not easy to find and they are fine typewriters.
