1927 Royal P Serial # P40424 1927 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P40424 Nick Bodemer's 1927 Royal P typewriter. 2018-09-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick Bodemer: 1927 Royal P Serial # P40424 I bought this typewriter on Labor Day for $12.99. When I bought it, it needed new rubber, a new drawband, and some love. I cleaned and oiled it, stripped the carrying case (and am painting it red) and gave it a new ribbon. It works like new now!

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal P on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal P By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
