The Typewriter Database 1957 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # AD-3625331 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brad Sarno: 1957 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # AD-3625331 A super clean QDL. It almost appeared to have been never used. The platen had no indication of heavy use, the type slugs were crystal-clean of any ink, the underside was immaculate, just pristine, like-new condition. It has an interesting typeface too, but I don't know the name of it. It's a 10-pitch, pica-sized font. The case has a cool colored tweed fabric coating as well. These are great machines. They type with a light and comfortable touch, they are reasonably quiet, the carriage is feather-light when returning, and they have a nice look to them.

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
