1932 Royal P Serial # P310062 1932 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P310062 Mark Schrad's 1932 Royal P typewriter. 2022-10-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1932 Royal P Serial # P310062 I got this wonderful, carmel-colored Royal P with crinkle finish from a seller in North Wales, PA, in September 2022. That seller got it from the estate of Randy Alexander—a fixture in the local Philadelphia music scene. As his obituary at “Billboard Magazine” (link below) attests, he was a well-known music journalist for the Trenton Times (as the case attests), as well as the PR man for the likes of Deep Purple, Joe Piscopo, and the Amazing Kreskin. Sounds like an amazing guy, who incidentally had great taste in writing machines!
