1930 Royal P Serial # P255714 1930 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P255714 Ben Metzger's 1930 Royal P typewriter. 2022-07-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ben Metzger: 1930 Royal P Serial # P255714 This is a nice Royal P in an uncommon white/cream color. Some folks believe that these were sold to clergy - though my personal theory is that they were more commonly sold to medical professionals. There are several other white Royal portables floating around, and it seems most of them have apothecary keyboards. This one doesn't have apothecary keys, but it does have a tabulator key, which was offered as an option on these second-generation Ps. A very interesting typewriter!
