1927 Royal P Serial # P10152 1927 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P10152 Nick Winter's 1927 Royal P typewriter. 2020-01-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick Winter: 1927 Royal P Serial # P10152 An earlyish Royal Portable in fairly good nick, excepting a platen which could have been hewn out of granite it's so hard. Has an unfortunate tendency to chew up its ribbon as a result.

Came in a job lot with a pair of size 12 Doc Martens; not sure about the shoes, but this typewriter definitely suits my aesthetic sensibilities. I wonder about its history as it has a 'rupees' key.

As with every other darn typewriter I own it's in need of a good clean.

Sold May 2019.
