The Typewriter Database 1934 Royal P Serial # P88-356048 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alex Sandler: 1934 Royal P Serial # P88-356048 This Royal was made in USA, sold in Poland and then somehow got to Odessa, possibly during WWII.

It is moreless mechanically sound, but optical condition is poor and platen is hard as a rock. It also had an issue with automatic ribbon reverse, which remained defunct for decades, but now it is fixed.

Royals are rare in Ukraine, and P portables are no exception. So I bought this worn down machine without any hesitation. At least, it might be the last remaining P in my city.
