Ohio antique mall purchase. Exterior paint nice and clean and shiny. Raised "ROYAL" lettering on back of paper guide nice and shiny. This P model has the closed ribbon spool covers, tabulater key, and square rubber feet. Typed okay but a few typebars slow to complete final position. SOLD to a friend 16Oct2017.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
