1937 Royal KHM
Up for sale is an attractive Royal KHM which was manufactured in 1937. This typewriter is in good shape all around, and is fully functional down to the bell. Cosmetically, this machine has some evidence of wear. Although the paint is mostly in good shape, there are a few scratches or imperfections. The chrome also has some pitting, although a lot of the chrome still shines nicely. Some of the labels are worn, but all are still legible and in decent shape. Although the rubber feet have some wear, the platen and feed rollers are all in good condition and should last for years to come.
Mechanically, this typewriter is perfect, and makes for an excellent workhorse.
