1961 Royal Royaluxe 425 Serial # RTS 4731575 1961 Royal Royaluxe 425 typewriter, Serial # RTS 4731575 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1961 Royal Royaluxe 425 typewriter. 2022-03-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1961 Royal Royaluxe 425 Serial # RTS 4731575 A Royal Royaluxe 425 with script typeface. Far as I know, the 425 is about the carriage being a tad wider than normal. The original owner knew nothing about it's origins. The name tag on the crate has a name and an address to one of the northern-most cities in Norway, which is in itself interesting.

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.
