1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1296196 1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # A-1296196 Jake Fischer's 1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2015-02-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jake Fischer: 1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1296196 I traded quite a few machines for this wonderful post-war Quiet De Luxe. It is in wonderful shape, but I am saving to recover all rubber and get serviced by Bill Wahl of the Mesa Typewriter Exchange.

I will be taking this to college in late August.

Such a classic design, and precise mechanics.

The one complaint I do have is the gimmicky Magic Margin. I would rather have both, or none. It is a little inconvenient to only have one.

Has a dealer decal for Nye's Business Machines in Seattle. In fact, my friend from Seattle says it smells like Seattle, whatever that means.

I am a typewriter collector and amateur repairman who became obsessed after typing at a young age on my grandfather's Olivetti Lettera 22, which he soon gave to me. Now I have had over ten typewriters in my collection, flipping the less valuable ones for a low price to fund my obsession.

At one point, I was weary of polish; now I see the wonderful shine that Meguiar's cleaning wax brings to a glossy paint. I still avoid polishing nickle or chrome, for I hear that patina is valuable on old metal. However, I refuse to use the devil's website, also known as Ebay. Just too many deaths by shipping...and unacceptably exuberant prices...
