1956 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # D3414839 1956 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # D3414839 Mark Schrad's 1956 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2021-04-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1956 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # D3414839 I got this 1956 QDL in grey with red badge and white tombstone keys in Center City Philadelphia in March of 2021. I was delighted to find that not only does it have the Canterbury/Pembrooke typeface, but also that it has a dealer tag from Robert DeBarth's in nearby Lansdale. For those who aren't local or "in the know," Bob DeBarth is a local treasure, and is still going strong at repairing machines up at his shop up in Lansdale even into his mid-90s! So, in sum, this is a very cool machine.
