The Typewriter Database 1931 Royal P Serial # P291442 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1931 Royal P Serial # P291442 Spotted this on a craigslist listing for an estate sale sitting on a typewriter table. I noticed that it had multiplication, Division, addition keys as well as an equals sign above the '7'. I also noticed the tabulator key which seems to be on some of the model Ps.
I ended up buying the table and the Royal and after adjusting the uppercase letters, which were printing a little too low, and replacing the Olivetti spools for some proper ones.

It works incredibly well, with no cleaning, and prints very nicely. For some reason, for me, the best machines to type on are those where you cannot adjust the touch of the keys.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
