Sunburst Royal Portable Typewriter, Orange Ribbon

This typecast looks as if it was typed using a red ribbon, but I swear the original is orange. I blame my scanner: it's colour blind! Also, please excuse my poor attempts to spell Cincinnati correctly. I'll learn by the time I get there in October.

Orange typewriter complete with orange ribbon? That's the bee's knees as far as I'm concerned.

Thank you Jasper. I believe, and I know you will correct me if I am wrong, that bee's knees are also orange.

I don't know for sure, but I think they would have to be. For all intents and purposes we'll agree they're orange, shall we?

edit; spelling. This is amazing. I just filled my Retro 51 Tornado Lava Flow fountain pen with orange ink, but this typewriter looks many times cooler. Nice photographs!

Your orange machine is beautiful!
I must get myself some orange ribbon for Peacherine (orange and plum Model P). Does Duane just sell them on eBay?
