1951 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # AG-2241119 1951 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # AG-2241119 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1951 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2015-06-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1951 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # AG-2241119 A nice companion to my Royal HH, this model was also the last stop for me in the continuing decline of the mighty QDL design. The type action is still wonderful, but concessions to manufacturing costs in its components are painfully evident. The QDL that followed this one was no longer worthy of the name.
