The Typewriter Database 1929 Royal P Serial # P122778 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tom Beauvais: 1929 Royal P Serial # P122778 Michigan antique mall purchase. Mahogany simulated wood-grain finish. Platen has cracks on very left edge. Ribbon with machine has some holes. Lots of keys sticking but when they do hit they make a good impression with using carbon paper. But machine would need repair to enable one to type okay. It was difficult doing a typeface sample. Machine is certainly good for a display.
SOLD to a friend 16Oct2017.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
