1932 Royal P Serial # P88-317630 1932 Royal P typewriter, Serial # P88-317630 Tas Kyprianou's 1932 Royal P typewriter. 2024-03-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1932 Royal P Serial # P88-317630 It's often a bit of a hassle asking for a typeface sample but this bad boy was worth the effort . . . A Royal Model P with a rare Modern Pica typeface.

In excellent condition, except the layers of residual tobacco. These polished off nicely though and the machine types like a dream, like every Model P I've used.
In fact, this one seems really well tuned as there was no need for me to slow down on it. It kept up perfectly.

This was with me for a week or so before heading to The US to fill a gap in a friend's typeface collection.

Thank you to everyone who helped identify the slugs. Most appreciated.
(I make no apologies for the photo dump. I'm probably never going to see another one of these again in my lifetime.)

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.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal P on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal P By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
