Correction: moldy, not “moldly”!
Correction: it’s an SM4, of course!

    The trail of clues lead me to that this is a Royal Ultronic… where else could you get that lovely script in carbon in "portable" form? :D

    It's a Royal Ultronic, I am 99.9% sure of it. Congratulations, Nick!

    Royal Custom Ultronic? I have seen several old newspaper ads for these (on microfilm) On microfilm, the ads look just like the photo :)

    I'm going to throw my hat in the ring and say a Royal Emperor, just to be a little different. Even if it does look Ultronic.

    However that's a few great scores there. The Olympia SM4 especially has my eye. If you ever want to sell it, let me know!

    It looked rather Empress-like at first glance. I knew that was a Royal Spencerian typeface at any rate.

    I am guessing a Royal Aristocrat. Nice haul, by the way!

    that is a fantastic typeface, even if it belongs to an electric typer.
    im sure that sm4 and underwood 21 were good biceps exercise.
