1929 Royal P

Serial #P137664

This one needs a'cleanin'.

This was a family endeavor; a Craigslist listing from a non-collector, causing us to see images of art-deco typefaces in our heads… (See: Royal Vogue typeface.)

No Vogue, but a typeface specimen is coming eventually :p

The oddest thing is the yellow H key. It looks like someone took highlighter to the keycap!

I got this machine on August 31st 2014.

Winning machine of the 7th Annual Antique Typewriter Collectors' Meeting speed typing competition, October 2014.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 20, to boot!

In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.

I also run The Daily Clipper, which while admittedly abandoned for 2 years is back up and running, soon to bring you articles on all sorts of history. Scheming and planning a website on the same domain.

The paint is badly worn on the two forward ribbon cover edges as well as the frame in front of the spacebar.

The paint wear in the foremost edge.

The paper table has been bent, causing paint loss on the left side of it.

An unconventional view of the yellow 'H' on the keyboard.

The keyboard, in its full 'yellow H' glory.

The serial number.


This machine is really, /really/ dusty.

Naaaaaaaastaaay. I see an air compressor in your future, mr. typewriter.
