Woah. That's quite a find. And yes, I'm incredibly jealous.
Some of the best finds are accidental. I wasn't even really looking for a Vogue Royal at the time, I just was randomly drawn by the immaculate condition to have a closer look at the listing. :)
I'm so jealous anyway - even without knowing the price... :)
A Royal treasure!
Looks like the typewriter is factory fresh! Congratulations! You have been getting quite a few nice machines lately, but I have to pick this one as the best. I have been looking for one with Vogue for about 3 years.
Back when I was actively searching for a Vogue machine (far before I got this, as this one just popped up and I looked at the listing by chance) I would look at every Royal Model P with a buy-it-now price that was listed. With the open top like they have, you can see the typeslugs on most listings. A buy-it-now listing is the only way to get one affordably (which usually means $100+ which is not really affordable), because at auction they always go so high.
Congratulations! This is a gorgeous machine.
Amazing. It's so hard to find a two-tone model P that still has its paint in such great condition. And Vogue too!
Great story, -telling, and photos. Pleasure to read. Pls. carry on!
She's a beauty all right!
Oh... I LOVE it! Too bad it isn't German, beautiful doesn't even cover it.
You wouldn't possibly be interested in parting with this machine, would you? :-)
