1966 Royal Custom

I bought this typewriter last year. It was missing the  ribbon cover at the time, but I found a matching substitute.

Smith-Corona Deville II

One of many Smith-Corona Corsair variants. I bought this typewriter in Bremerton last week. The padded carriage-return lever is a nice touch. While the Deville name was reserved for Classic 12 variants sold at Kmart stores, the Deville II seems to have been sold primarily by jewelry stores.

July 1969 Signature 511D

This typewriter is my latest acquisition--it is easily the best Montgomery Ward typewriter ever--it is even good by Brother's standards.
