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.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal Quiet De Luxe on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal Quiet De Luxe By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
