1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1681544 1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # A-1681544 Jessica Winkowski's 1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2016-04-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jessica Winkowski: 1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1681544 Purchased at a garage sale in Cedar Rapids, IA on 4/15/2011 for $25.

The crayon on the top has given me nothing but grief and I have tried EVERYTHING to get it off. Nothing works. Hairdryer and/or iron with paper towel. Magic eraser. Dish soap. Kerosene. Toothbrush. I may just have to repaint the top.

Otherwise, it's a fine machine.

I've been collecting typewriters since 2010 and currently have 100+ machines in my possession. While I have my personal collection, I also clean up typewriters for sale and would like to learn to repair and restore them, too.
