1931 Royal P Serial # P293218 1931 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P293218 Tas Kyprianou's 1931 Royal P typewriter. 2023-07-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1931 Royal P Serial # P293218 This is one of those machines you need to see and type on to appreciate. The sound and feel of the key strike is reminiscent of my favourite typer, the KMM. The glass tops have a warmth and snap that somehow don't belong to something this old. Even the crackle glaze finish has somehow survived its 92 years of use. Incredible.

I had NO intention of keeping this (it came bundled with a recent Adler Privat purchase) but a friend said that "every home should have one" and he was right, it took just a few taps to know it was going to stay.

A pocket rocket would be a good description. This thing punches WAY above its weight.
I've adjusted the alignment of the Pica-sized typeface and I'll add a slither of rubber to its perished feet. Apart from that I have no intention of messing with this bundle of fun.

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 41 machines.

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.
