My favorite typewriter

This is a typewriter that I've always dreamed of owning (especially in this color). I traded my Royal Model O for it at a vintage market--it was well worth the trade! This typewriter did not come in a case, but fits incredibly neatly in a shoulder bag. This is the first 1930s Royal I've ever owned that has had a tabulator. (Also, my first 1930s Royal that is painted a color, in this case, Duotone Brown) At some point between 1950 and 1963, this typewriter was serviced by the Wager's Office Equipment/St. Paul Typewriter Exchange (the label lists both). 

Below is a flyer for the Duotone Royal, provided to me by Darryl Bridson, Royal Consumer Information Products
