1930 Royal P Serial # P191118 1930 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P191118 Septimus Clark's 1930 Royal P typewriter. 2021-02-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Septimus Clark: 1930 Royal P Serial # P191118 This was an antique shop score. A stunner that was sitting on the front counter all proud of itself , just inside the door. Love at first sight. The damage to the right ribbon cover is the only flaw in this otherwise perfect time traveler. And that damage? Caused one week before I came across it by a customer in said antique shop who was fondling some other potential buy - and proceeded to drop the thing right onto this machine. From 1930 to 2020 without a scratch, and then some klutz goes ahead with the all thumbs routine. Well, I shouldn't bitch, it allowed me to knock $50 off the price tag.
