1928 Royal P Serial # P-102892 1928 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P-102892 Mark Schrad's 1928 Royal P typewriter. 2023-01-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1928 Royal P Serial # P-102892 Interesting blue/grey Royal P from 1928, which I bought from an Albanian gentleman in Northeast Philadelphia in January 2023, just a few blocks from Bell's Russian Market. It seems to have been professionally reconditioned and repainted, probably in the 1950s. The green case and undersides of some of the body panels suggest that it was originally alligator green in color. But it also has a newer ribbon vibrator and wonderful case handle.
