1959 Royal Futura 800
Up for sale is a pretty Royal Futura 800 in blue and gray which was manufactured in 1959. This typewriter is in near mint shape all around, with very few cosmetic flaws. Mechanically, this typewriter is fully functional right down to the bell and is an excellent typer. The Futura also has a unique and attractive font, which is slightly different than standard, although the size is still the standard at 10 characters per inch.
This typewriter is also very easy to use and care for, and uses universal ribbons which are sold on this site. The owner's manual can be downloaded here: http://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/RoyalFutura.pdf
This typewriter also comes with a nice clear plastic cover, labeled Royal Futura. The original case is in good shape overall, although the original handle is missing. If you're somewhat crafty, it wouldn't be too difficult to install a new handle, but I decided to leave that up to the buyer.
This typewriter is a beautiful machine that's ready to be used heavily and reliably.
