1929 Royal P Serial # P158994 1929 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P158994 Mark Schrad's 1929 Royal P typewriter. 2021-01-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1929 Royal P Serial # P158994 This is an orange/black duotone 1929 Royal Model P portable typewriter with "vogue" typeface. I bought it from a private seller on November 25, 2018, as I was on a 20-hour drive from Thanksgiving in Iowa back to Philadelphia, while outrunning an ice storm. We met the seller (and this is true) in the parking lot of a strip club near the Indianapolis airport. (The main picture here is from that parking lot.) It didn't take much cleaning at all to get it into spectacular working order.
