A Royal Quiet De Luxe displaying a dealer sticker from Valley Typewriter Company (Visalia, Fresno, Merced). One is placed over the right shift key, and one on the inside cover.
"Shift Freedom" means the basket moves for upper and lower case typing, not the carriage (less distracting, Royal claimed).
Got this one at a thrift store, where the Quiet De Luxe abounds, testifying to its success. Came with a hard (plastic?) case.
If you compare this one with my 1947 Quiet De Luxe (Serial #A-1344297 - listed at TWDB) you will note some striking differences in design.
