1962 Royal Empress Serial # MCE 11-7378220 1962 Royal Empress typewriter, Serial # MCE 11-7378220 Mark Schrad's 1962 Royal Empress typewriter. 2022-06-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1962 Royal Empress Serial # MCE 11-7378220 I got this light moss green 1962 Royal Empress from a fellow collector in West Philadelphia in June, 2022. Took some work to get the linkages back together and replace some missing screws and springs, but it is back to full, voluptuous, working condition. I had quite a time cleaning it, which reminded me of "Whipped Cream and Other Delights" by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, so I've been listening to that a lot while working on it.
