Looks like another 1929 Royal Model 10 is back in town
looking for a new home.
None smoker please - booze O.K.
Let's check this old banger out by the count!
Decals look very nice, front plate paper table and even
on the back!
Paint looks like a Regal re-built from the early thirtys. Paint is
good , no digs or chips. (Sorry for you folks out there that are looking
to find one with more bare spots!)
Nickel is bright with little to no pitting, if any.
The feet are in good shape, and the keyboard is white (original) and
is very nice with good nickel rings and glass.
Now through no fault of the typewriter, I had to put
a new platen, feed rolls and bail rolls on it. This is a must as the
life of the rubber is only about 20 years. Now I understand that many
people buy old typers for 'show and tell' or 'doorstop duty', but when
you buy a Fine Old Typer from MrT, you get a machine ready to use for
what it was made for - typing!
A new red and black ribbon on new metal spools really
set this old timer off. I always hate to see those plastic mickey mouse
spools on a grand old writer like this.
A few hours in the cleaning tub and a few more spit and
polish sessions and we are talking one foxy old banger here ready to
fly with the rest of them!
Wonder what line this old timer is saying to make that
sweetheart 1929 Royal portable blush that much??
