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.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal P on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal P By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
