|It's a 1964-1965 Royal Sahara, in Pewter Gray!|
This typewriter was only made for two years. (I think that this is because of the ridiculously round case, and the fact that it is essentially a Royal Safari, which sold for $20 less when it was new) Most of these typewriters are found in Royal's wedge-shaped case--the round case has a flimsy-seeming handle, and was not originally designed to be a typewriter case; it has a cushion that was placed in it by the factory to hold the machine in place.
|This was the standard Sahara ad that appeared in countless newspapers. The case weighs roughly the same as Royal's more standard case.|
