A hard-to-find butterfly (also known as bow-tie or concave) model from Royal Yo-Yo Inc. Pre-printed with the price of "1.29". Beige white body with white sticker and "Royal® Yo-Yo" in red lettering and the outline of a 5-point crown with (T) in it (trademark). This model was Royal's version of Duncan's Butterfly model. Metal axle, starburst response, and 100% cotton string.

This yo-yo is likely from around 1969-1974. The sentence on the card front, at the bottom, says, "Precision designed by the original yo-yo experts to rigid tournament specifications". A few years later, the sentence was changed to read "The yo-yo of the famous Philipino Champions".

Compare with the Royal Yo-Yo Fire-Fly #88 model from the mid 1970s.
