1953 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # RA-2752342 1953 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # RA-2752342 Hunter Shaw's 1953 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2022-08-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Hunter Shaw: 1953 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # RA-2752342 My first typewriter, it came with original bill of sale (Sold in Kansas City Missouri for $91.80 in 1953, roughly $1000 in 2022.) manual, and some original paraphernalia. It came to me with some mechanical problems in the tabulator, but I had a local TW mechanic fix it up and it’s working great now. I passed it along to my friend who really enjoyed using it while it was on my desk. I believe it’s in crinkle grey or “dove grey” as I also heard it called.
Made in the United States.

Reformed IT guy. I have a thing for manual ultra portables and Olivetti machines in general. I also love fountain pens and all kinds of fine stationery!
