The Typewriter Database 1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1295253 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of JP Huard: 1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1295253 Picked this up on a local Craigslist while at home for some holiday break due to it's being Mark Petersen's favorite portable typewriter (I want to say he's got four of them but I could be slightly off).

Needless to say, I can't deny that it types very well. Its platen is in great shape (possibly the best out of all my typewriters) and does have a very nice feel to it. Okay, I'll even admit that it's a really great looking machine from all angles. But not better than a Corona flat top.
