1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe #A-1532769


First year of Henry Dreyfuss design.
Has ELITE type and not PICA as previous models in my collection, and has been redesigned, in general.
This unit is very clean and serviceable, for one that has not seen a technician in decades.

Typeface Specimen:


Royal Quiet De Luxe 1941 next to the 1948.

Another pic of the 1941 and 1948 models.

Better view of First Year gravestone keytop design. Still has the metal and plastic, w/inserts composition (BTW, at least from 1938 until the first year solid key design, Royal used a variety of PLASTIC and NOT glass, which is assumed.)
