This yo-yo came out about the same time as the Royal Champions string pack, 3 for 10¢, seen here.

The stamp of the 5-point crown on this yo-yo is slightly incomplete. There should be a thin gold line just below the crown to complete the oval shape. Something to watch for if you collect Royal yo-yos.

Back of card talks about Royal yo-yo contests and that "There are only a few -- Watch on local TV station for announcement". The back of the card also has a space to print your name, address, and zip code but it doesn't tell you what you do with the information or where to send it or whether you just bring it to a contest.

The card is pre-printed with a price of 69¢. Many Royal cards from this same time period had a pre-printed price that was identical to the yo-yo's model number. See the following exhibits:
Royal - Tournament, No. 409, 49¢ US
Royal - Master, No. 59, 59¢ US
Royal - Standard, No. 69, 69¢ US
Royal - Monarch, No. 100, $1.00 US
