This listing is for a 1953 Royal Companion in light grey. A lovely little typewriter in great condition. A beautiful hard-sided case with a red interior comes with it. Your basic, introductory typewriter without any bells or whistles. Does not have a tabulator or margin release. Single-color ribbon. We installed a new black-only ribbon for you. The exterior is in fantastic condition.

performance review: I love how the keys are close together, making it easy to use for smaller hands. Only needs a light touch and everything seemed to be working well – no issues detected. Suitable for medium, regular use.

Be sure to watch the demo video below so you can see for yourself how smooth and easy it is to use. Cleaned, serviced, tested, and a new ribbon is installed. It is ready to go!
