 This Royal Arrow portable was most likely made in Canada in 1941 and is in a lovely matt charcoal black colour with a "crinkle " finish . It is in a very  good condition for its age with only a few very minor marks and signs of wear to the paintwork and some wear and fading to the silver chromework mainly on the type bars . It has classic keys with silver chrome surrounds in a black colour with creme coloured numbers and letters . There are some minor scratches to a few of the keys , mainly the "e" .This machine  has the slightly larger "Pica" sized font giving you 10 letters to the inch.

It has the Royal logo and " Made in the British Empire " on the front of the ribbon cover,  the Royal name on the back and three silver levers for adjusting touch control . ribbon colour and ribbon reverse .

We can supply Group 9 typewriter ribbons at £4.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black, blue and purple. A ribbon will last you a long time and to give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would last them around 3 months .

"My Olivetti arrived a couple days ago. Got a chance to test it out and it works like a dream (you wouldn’t guess it was nearly half a century old). Thank you for including the original metal spools, it adds a great touch to the machine. Looking forward to adding another typewriter to the collection sometime soon..." - Jake
