I just received Ring Lardner's original typewriter for Valentine's Day. My husband didn't know what this treasure was until he gave me a sheet of paper that came with it. It just said the owner was Ring Lardner, that it was a Royal 10 R324040. It said the original owner was born in 1885 in Niles, Michigan and that he was a writer. Well, I've come to learn what a find this really was!

    What a find you have! Ring Lardner was working for the Chicago Tribune in 1919, and covered the Black Sox Scandal, where the White Sox were accused of throwing the World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. Is there a date on the typewriter? If he used this typewriter to cover the scandal, and you can show provenance, you would have a piece that the Baseball Hall of Fame would most likely be interested in having.
