    Description

    Vintage Royal typewriter Stan Freberg used to compose "Stan Freberg Presents: The United States of America: Volume 1 The Early Years" album. (1961) Stan Freberg has always been an original, so it is no surprise that he had his own method of typing on this Royal typewriter. He never took any typing lessons so when he acquired this Royal, he simply used just his two index fingers to type everything. Today those two curved fingers show the years of use and set themselves apart from his other fingers that had an easier life. The keys on this Royal typewriter contributed to the legendary works of Freberg which included his "Green Chri$tma$" record and the historical "Stan Freberg Presents the United States of America". Most of The Stan Freberg Radio Shows on CBS and many commercials of the 1950s and 1960s were written on this typewriter. The signature tool of this master's trade. In vintage good and working condition (ink ribbon still present). Comes with an LOA from Stan Freberg. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
