Re: Royal Apollo 10

Is that 'Royal' with a glyph or logo after it, or 'Royale'?

Royal with a glyph.

Re: Royal Apollo 10

Actually, the logo after the word "Royal" is an Li--which stands for Litton Industries.  Somewhere in the mid-to-late 1960s, Litton Industries bought both Royal of the United States and Imperial of Great Britain.  This explains why some of their machines look alike, while having either name affixed to the front.

Re: Royal Apollo 10

I love the styling of the Royal Apollo 10 and also own a Royal Apollo 12 - which model increment I think merely was adopted when they replaced stylish upper case with a thicker and more protective one. Also, they work fine - although I discovered that some of the trim is made from a material very like hanging colored file folders.

Speaking of glyphs and logos n' such, I saw a "Royal B" on sale - it was a Royal Ultronic and the "B" was the Litton glyph - which admittedly looks very like a B to me too.

Re: Royal Apollo 10

The Apollo is on my "some day" list. One came up for sale recently in my area, for a reasonable price, and I discussed it with Valiant (he was after one too). I'm not sure if it sold, but it is a neat design given the model's name and its historic context.

Re: Royal Apollo 10

I just bought one and am having trouble with it: the keys jam often and you must reset the machine for it to function again. Am I missing something?
