1955 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # RA2982894 1955 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # RA2982894 Paul Seitz's 1955 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2019-01-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Seitz: 1955 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # RA2982894 I was very lucky to find this lovely machine in a Facebook add posted by a seller who happened to be in a town I was driving through on Christmas Eve, and was able to schedule a meeting and make the purchase at a great price for a typewriter that worked but needed a good cleaning. Now that I've cleaned it and added a newer ribbon, I completely understand why this model is the most popular in the world of typewriters represented by the Typewriter Database.

After too many rapid cross country moves, I realized suddenly that my c. 1964 Hermes 3000 was missing - lost or stolen at some point in a move. I'd bought that machine new from a shop as I entered high school, did all my homework on it, typed all my college research papers and my Master's thesis on it, but gradually used it less and less over the years. Still, the sudden realization that it was gone felt like a really significant loss, which puzzled me. Wondering why I was so moved by the loss of something I hadn't actually used in years, I began to get more and more interested in typewriters and the many layers of stories each seems to accumulate. I started to learn a little - just enough to have a chance to find some good machines that I can afford, as I gradually try to understand the (apparently, important) place of the typewriter in my soul.
