1951 Royal Quiet De Luxe #AG-2271191


A gift from Key Snap, first year of the plastic-key QDL's and the second year of the 1950's Royal body design changeover. Dove Grey, just like my 1949 QDL.

Went to a writer interested in something that, and I quote: "worked well and had character, could withstand the conditions of Burning Man, and wouldn't be missed if it went missing or was destroyed." Replaced at the Pressroom with a similar Royal, a Portugese Sabre.

Typeface Specimen:



Hunter: Ted Munk (munk)

Status: Curator
Points: 2786

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
