1928 Royal P Serial # P107828 1928 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P107828 Mark Schrad's 1928 Royal P typewriter. 2021-01-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1928 Royal P Serial # P107828 This woodgrain 1928 Royal P portable typewriter was found in Audubon, New Jersey in May of 2020. The previous owners found it in the attic of the house they'd bought twenty years earlier, and knew nothing of its origins beyond that. At some point, it appears to have had Smith-Corona-style keys installed. It needed a thorough cleaning and tune-up, but the decals and the woodgrain finish are in remarkably good shape.
