Back in December 2015 I promised an update on this little guy. Don’t wanna rush these things.
Here we have the ROYAL Citadel from the 1960’s. Haven’t been able to pin down a specific manufacture year – serial number CT5602339. I did find information that puts it as produced before 1967. [Now confirmed from a knowledgeable typospherian as a 1963 critter]
As you can see, I have loaded it with a pink ribbon. The ribbon reverse is a little wonky, but it’s in fine condition and I do enjoy typing on it for short missives. The platen is slick so I find it necessary to load it with an extra page for grip.
