1927 Royal P Serial # P46407 1927 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P46407 Richard Polt's 1927 Royal P typewriter. 2017-03-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1927 Royal P Serial # P46407 A beautiful blue portable from the second year of manufacture. Note the odd keyboard with a cedilla (as in ç), a macron (used for indicating long vowels), and a caron (the little V that can go over a letter). What language could have required these three signs? Lithuanian and Latvian are possible candidates but they don't seem to be perfect fits.

PS: I have gotten the interesting suggestion that the intended language for this typewriter is Winnebago. See the link to a Wikipedia article about this language.
