1934 Royal P

Serial #P88-356048

After this sudden discovery, I dismantled right shift key and found there "Zmeniacz". Therefore I believe my Royal had originally Polish layout.

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.
