1927 Royal P Serial # P 29988 1927 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P 29988 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1927 Royal P typewriter. 2019-07-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1927 Royal P Serial # P 29988 I got an Ideal A3 a few weeks ago, and not only it is a great find, but also it has opened the way for its friends. This Royal P is the first of the band.

I was so satisfied with the Ideal A3 that the seller asked if I was interested in more typewriters. He offered me this little green beauty at a great price, so I couldn't refuse. Now I'm so satisfied with this machine that I've ordered 5 typewriters more. Finding someone that accurately assesses the condition of a typewriter, puts a fair price on it (for both parts, not a blatant theft) and knows how to securely ship a 115 years old typewriter is a true blessing.

This Royal P has taken my top list by force. It's undoubtedly one of the best of its class (pre-WW2 portables) I've tried. It's in very good condition, it's super-responsive, the carriage runs like water down a stream, it sounds beautiful... I've just had to feed it a new ribbon and it was ready to go. What a good typewriter.

Look at the handle. It's a leather belt! Ugly, but it works.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
