1954 Royal Aristocrat
Up for sale is a popular Royal Aristocrat which was manufactured in 1954. This typewriter is nearly identical to a Royal Quiet Deluxe, and has the same features and design which sold extremely well. If you're in the market for a smooth typer that's also one of the easiest to use and care for, then this is one of my highest recommendations. This particular Aristocrat is an extremely smooth machine to use, and can definitely stand up to heavy and frequent use. The font is the standard 10-pitch pica typeface, and it prints very crisply and clearly along with the reliably, snappy typing action. While this machine is not quite perfect cosmetically, the crinkle paint is in good shape overall, and there is no rust anywhere to be found.
Universal typewriter ribbons, which are sold on this site, fit this machine perfectly. This typewriter also comes with the original key for the carrying case. The owner's manual can be downloaded for free here: http://www.machinesoflovinggrace.com/manuals/RoyalPortables1953Manual.pdf
