OH MY GOODNESS! What a find!! This is a gorgeous machine and it works. 111 years old. This model is hard to find – ESPECIALLY WITH THE LEATHER CASE.
The decals are in good condition, though the sides do not have decals. Comes with the original spools and we’ve wound fresh black only ribbon on it. This typewriter uses specialty spools so you’ll want to make sure to keep these spools with the typewriter. The exterior is gorgeous!!
I combined the typewriter tutorial video with the typing demo video so there is only one extended video to go with this typewriter.

Be sure to really check out this leather case! If you happen to find a Royal No. 1, you probably won’t find the case with it. This leather case is stunning. It does have some wear and water damage, but for 111 years old it is still so beautiful. (I want to keep this typewriter JUST for the leather case!). ❤️

Operationally, this typewriter is impressive. I can type quickly and there was zero hesitation or stiffness. We did replace the draw string and it is a nice, sturdy draw string. On this typewriter, we are not offering a warranty ONLY BECAUSE TO SHIP THE BIG, HEAVY, ANITQUE TYPEWRITER IS VERY, VERY EXPENSIVE AND THE PACKING MUST BE DONE VERY CAREFULLY. Because of the high risk in shipping back and forth, we decided not to offer a warranty.

Original glass keys and beautifully aged keys.

Please watch the video I created so you can see my full review of this machine.

We recommend adding a non-slip typewriter pad to keep the typewriter from scooting across the table.

Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon installed, demo & tutorial videos. Be sure to watch the demo video so you can see how it performs! There are no known issues. The Royal No. 1 uses a specialty spool and when you need new ribbon, please use the CUSTOM RIBBON option. We have wound fresh black ink ribbon on the existing spools for you. A respool may be ordered on Etsy or on our website.

(REMEMBER: we professionally SERVICE our typewriters and do NOT replace parts, unless otherwise noted. We do NOT restore or refurbish.)
