1930 Royal P Serial # P-207423 1930 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P-207423 Mark Schrad's 1930 Royal P typewriter. 2023-04-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1930 Royal P Serial # P-207423 I got this alligator red 1930 Royal P during Covid times... so 2020? Early 2021? It was from the Malvern/Sugartown area of Pennsylvania. Given its incredible shape, I thought I'd save it as an "heirloom" machine. That is, until I realized that it had a broken ribbon vibrator. So up into storage it went, until 2023 when I was able to source a replacement vibrator from the good folks at Philly Typewriter. So now it is back up and running as it should!
