1946 Royal Quiet De Luxe #A-1217288


Nice condition with good case. Refurbished by Lowell Plum at Arrow Office Products in Boulder. Thrift store find! Tricky escapement even after refurbishment, which seemed to happen some time after moving from Boulder to Kansas (I blame the moving truck!) so I can't type fast on it (see type example). Still, a delight to look at and smell that typewriter smell.

A long-time fan of all things typewriter, I am truly delighted with the friendly people I find in the typosphere. Thank you.
In collecting, I believe I am trying to make it up to myself having given away the loyal Smith Corona that got me through college. Guilt is a strange thing.
The machine count is over 100, now... mostly portables, and lots of orphaned machines, both manual and electric, given to me by family and friends.
