1951 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # AG-2271191 1951 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # AG-2271191 Ted Munk's 1951 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2015-06-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1951 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # AG-2271191 A gift from Key Snap, first year of the plastic-key QDL's and the second year of the 1950's Royal body design changeover. Dove Grey, just like my 1949 QDL.

Went to a writer interested in something that, and I quote: "worked well and had character, could withstand the conditions of Burning Man, and wouldn't be missed if it went missing or was destroyed." Replaced at the Pressroom with a similar Royal, a Portugese Sabre.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
