Amazing. I would gladly pay a lot more than $25 for either one of those machines. Well done!
Such great finds. I have to scour so many antique malls and flea markets every weekend just to come across machines I already have, and here you are with a shop that has ten! I mostly use Craigslist and the like, but it is always nice to walk up on a machine in the wild and get a good deal.Those are both very nice typewriters. The Standard has a nice gleam to it, and the flatbed design is to die for. I have their later Standard, with the crackle paint, and it is a great typer. If that Royal Companion types half as good as the Royal Arrow I have, which I am sure it does, you have found a great machine. I am not partial to Royals, but a few of their portables are amazing. All in all, that sounds like a great Typewriter Day. Thanks for sharing!
Very cool! You are fortunate to have found nice machines locally. That rarely happens in my area.
It's not common to find a selection of machines like this around here. In fact, I've been going into that antiques mall for years and found nothing until this line-up came along.
