1930 Royal P Serial # P88-257114 1930 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P88-257114 Otto Koponen's 1930 Royal P typewriter. 2024-03-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Otto Koponen: 1930 Royal P Serial # P88-257114 Royal 'P' Portable from 1930
Finnish layout
Vogue typeface

This is one of only a handful of known 88 character Vogue P's, and the only known Finnish layout Vogue machine. It was almost certainly a special order. Please correct me if you have more information.

It was originally used by a lawyer here in Finland as his travel typewriter, must have been a pretty cool guy to get something like this.

When I got this machine it was completely gunked up with old grease and most keys wouldn't type at all. I've cleaned and serviced the machine, replaced a few parts from a donor machine, and it also has a new platen from AKB Longs in the Netherlands.
