1959 Royal Diana Serial # DTE100639 1959 Royal Diana typewriter, Serial # DTE100639 Emily Tillman's 1959 Royal Diana typewriter. 2021-09-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Emily Tillman: 1959 Royal Diana Serial # DTE100639 I like this Diana a lot better than the QDL in my collection. It works well, but could use some degreasing, especially around ribbon spools. They get a little stuck sometimes. I'm gonna keep this one out on the desk and see if she loosens up with use. Glad to get it for only $28! Not too many of these listed on the database. Wonder how many were manufactured. The metal body certainly makes it heavy! Typeface is 11 cpi.

Bitten by typewriter bug during childhood. Life-long condition. No cure. Only symptom management. Happy to be here.
