1957 Royal Quiet De Luxe

Serial #AE-3525935

1 or 2 Royals for $22/pair from my 83-year-old friend; this one was his mother's. She used it to write letters to her grandchildren. Interesting typeface; perhaps it is the "Pembrooke."

Living in So. Calif. USA. Bought a mint SC flattop at an estate sale for $5 some years ago, and enjoyed the tactility of typing after using computers since 1968, the punch-card era. I gave it to my mother-in-law to exercise her arthritic fingers. After she passed away last year I found it among her things. I wanted something newer, so bought an Olympia SM3. I am not a collector, but seem to have acquired more than 30 machines since March 2016, and have passed several on to family and friends, and bartered with others.

The case appears to be reinforced with resin/fiberglass cloth, almost like Samsonite luggage from the era.

Lovely key shapes, and the Q, E, R, and F keycap graphics are beautifully drawn.
