1957 Royal FP Serial # FPE-13-6360026 1957 Royal FP typewriter, Serial # FPE-13-6360026 Abby Barth's 1957 Royal FP typewriter. 2016-04-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Abby Barth: 1957 Royal FP Serial # FPE-13-6360026 I found this at an estate sale for $15. It was in the garage and covered in dirt. It is my most recent cleaning project. It has some body scratches under the space bar and on the top. Everything seems to be working, but most letters stick, and it seems on the left SHIFT, the SHIFT lock button was used to replace SHIFT, and the actual SHIFT button is missing. Otherwise, it functions, it is just very dirty. The ribbon color changer is small and chrome, not a plastic wheel on other models. That is what I used to differentiate years, based on other finder's remarks. This is one of the rougher typewriters I've purchased.

Growing up, my grandmother had a typewriter sitting on top of a filing cabinet. I always wanted to try it out, but it wasn't until 20 years later when she closed her store that she finally let me have it. Since then, I have been on the search for more.
