1926 Royal 10 Serial # X-1024315 1926 Royal 10 typewriter, Serial # X-1024315 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1926 Royal 10 typewriter. 2022-01-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1926 Royal 10 Serial # X-1024315 A machine that has a long service record as an office machine at the town hall of the city of Trondheim in Norway. Unknown exactly how long it was in use there, but likely from when purchased some time in the 20s and up to around the 50s when the father of the previous owner went into retirement and was gifted the machine as a farewell gift. The machine types better than the typeface specimen implies as I put a brown ribbon on it that didn't have the greatest saturation of ink.

I am a Norwegian fellow who enjoys tinkering and fixing up typewriters. One day I decided I wanted a typewriter to write letters on. I bought one that turned out not to work. I got annoyed and decided I should be able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I did it, but the rush of successfully mending such an intricate machine was like a drug. I wanted more. I decided I would try to buy non-functioning, but pretty machines, fix them and sell them before repeating the process. What I didn't expect was that I would fall in love with the machines I fix so now I suddenly find myself a bit of a collector.
