1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe

Serial #A-1622128

I fixed this for a friend and sent it back to its home.

The internal mechanics are virtually identical to my 1939 Royal Aristocrat with the exception of the margin release mechanism.

This QDL was designed by industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss.

The typewriter has unique “tombstone” glass keys, Magic Margin controls and basket shift.

Serial number located on left side under carriage.

I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.
