  1. You are on a roll this month! So many stunning typewriters, with magnificent typefaces to match. Congratulations on another great find. I wonder if anyone else has noticed that all the Vogue typefaces seem to be found on the colorful Royals? Were any plain black ones made that had Vogue? Just wondering...

    1. I reduced my desires to a simple formula, and just got lucky a few times. XD

      I have always wondered the same! The only one I've known to have Vogue that wasn't a colourful Royal portable was a 1950s Royal HH and that is an anomaly in the Vogue world.

  2. Impressive score! And now you've got me wondering about a recovered platen. Must be a joy to type on. Congrats!

    1. It's definitely got a worn feel to the action, but the good platen helps a lot. Thanks. :)

  7. I think as long as you don't look round the back too often you can consider you got a bargain. Let's face it, paint is just paint but a good platen's a platen.
