1941 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-998388 1941 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # A-998388 Ian Brumfield's 1941 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2016-07-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Brumfield: 1941 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-998388 Had to get this one because of the unusual color. It's almost a perfect chocolate brown.

It also comes in a special case. This case has leather trim, and all the exposed metal parts are brass. The case is designed so that if you disconnect the halves and flip the top of the case upside down, the bottom of the case sits snugly on top of the upside down top. This was intended to bring the typewriter to proper typing height of you lacked a proper table, but had a chair next to you that you could use to set your typewriter up in. I have a 1939 Christmas ad showcasing this case.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 20, to boot!

In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.
