1927 Royal P

Serial #P26703

1927 Royal P

Fairly nice machine. A previous owner had spray-painted white paint over the original blue, which ended up flaking and ruining the appearance. Unfortunately, the original blue paint and decals were unable to be restored. Paint was stripped off, and I repainted it red. Note that the black paint is still original, to my knowledge, only the red has been redone. It looks rather nice, but I wish I was able to put new decals on it.

My first experience with a typewriter came when I was around 6 years old, every time I visited my grandmother I would go type on her Smith Corona electronic (wedge) typewriter. Back in early 2012, my mother stumbled across the USBTypewriter project, and I was hooked instantly. I quickly bought a kit, and in June 2012 I purchased the machine to be used with it: my beautiful late model Royal 10. Later that year as I stopped at an antique store, and found another machine: this time a Remington Rand Model 7. I thought I would buy just one more. Then later, one more. And then one more. Pretty soon I amassed around 30 machines, and that number is still growing today! I hope to get them all uploaded here soon so that I actually have a count on my typewriters, because I lost count long ago.
