1969 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Century Serial # 7947784 1969 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Century typewriter, Serial # 7947784 Todd Payne's 1969 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Century typewriter. 2019-09-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Todd Payne: 1969 Royal (Silver-Seiko) Century Serial # 7947784 Lovely two tone blue all metal machine. Not to be confused with the taupe model from 1960 or so which I also own and about which little is written. (similar to the Heritage). Can have a tinny sound when typing like their close relatives the brothers, but this is easy to remedy by replacing the rubber bumpers under the ribbon cover and especially under the spacebar.

Look closely and see one of the bumpers under the spacebar. Replace both. Huge improvement in feel and sound.

A lover of the written word, I was bitten by the typewriter bug at the beginning of 2019 when I embarked on a Joyful Odyssey to track down a vintage Olympia SM 7/8/9, (I didn't know the model number at the time) that my mother had owned and which I had used to type my college applications in the late 1980's. I have acquired quite a number since, and have enjoyed learning about the history, mechanics, and true variety of these machines.
