It's been awhile since I decided to check out the local antique stores, so I decided I would take a look around today. Lo and behold, the very first destination I went to netted me a gorgeous Royal portable within about 10 seconds of walking in the door. I didn't notice that the case was actually green until I got it outside, but wow just look at the interior case design as well. Absolutely stunning.
The machine is in what I call "Grandma" shape; likely bought brand new by a young lady in the 1920's or 1930's who kept very good care of it until stored away for awhile, before in the here and now a family member started cleaning out the estate and selling what they found.
Serial number of P62504 puts it as 1929.
