This Royal standard portable Model "O" typewriter is a nice compact size. The case measures 13" x 12" by 6" with the typewriter inside being slightly smaller. The serial number is O-400034 (the second to last number may be a 5--hard to read!) indicating the machine was manufactured in 1934.
Unlike many vintage typewriters, this one is still perfectly suited for use!
Condition: This typewriter is in excellent used condition. All the keys are present with no cracked or missing glass.
The glass keys are in excellent condition with no missing letters, no cracks in the glass, and no discoloration. The keys operate with no jamming. The platen is in excellent condition and turns easily. The carriage return works properly. The ribbon is included but could stand replacement.
The paint is in near perfect condition. There is one light scuff mark to the left of the space bar and a couple of scratches on the front where the typewriter touches the back of the lock when the typewriter is being lifted in and out of the case. The chrome is in very good condition with no signs of rust or corrosion. The graphics on the front and back of the typewriter are in near perfect condition. The typewriter still has all its feet.
The case shows normal wear from age with a bit of scuffing on the corners. The original handle is attached but is worn. The lock does close and latch properly. I don't have the key. The typewriter locks easily into place in the case. The case has done a fine job of protecting the machine over many years and continues to do so.
