The Typewriter Database 1954 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # RA-2866152 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1954 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # RA-2866152 QDL, Pica typeface.

It appears that all "RA" prefix QDLs from 1953/54/55 are outfitted with "Speed Selector", a knob for increasing/decreasing the carriage motor tension, to fine tune it to your touch. A feature often found on Royal standards of the 50's like the HH, (called "Carriage Control") but apparently only found on a portable like the QDL in those 3 years, and only on "RA" prefix QDLs.
