1960s Royal Mercury
Up for sale is a nice little Royal Mercury which was made in Japan in the 1960s. This typewriter is very light and portable, so it would be great to travel with. The typewriter mechanism isn't anything to brag about, but it is very reliable and is fully functional. When the time comes for a new ribbon, this model does use universal ribbons which are readily available and are for sale on this website. This typewriter also comes with the type-guard, and a few extras including the instructions manual. Overall, this is a great ultra-portable which would be great for heavy use, especially on the go.
