1929 Royal P Serial # P161087 1929 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P161087 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1929 Royal P typewriter. 2018-06-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1929 Royal P Serial # P161087 This was a machine repaired for a customer. This one was in pretty good shape cosmetically, but didn't work all too well.

The feed rollers needed replacement, as well as the bail rollers. The escapement was all out of whack, and it needed a good clean-up.

After all this work, it was returned to functionality and now writes very well. The old cotton ribbon is very fragile, and the slugs chop it to little pieces even with two backing sheets, so it has the Royal patented cement platen as one could expect of a 90 year old typewriter.

This one is duotone blue, and is fitted with an elite typeface. Still types crisply, and I'm sure whomever buys it will decide to use it rather than look at it.

Apparently this one came from Massachusetts.
