This one showed up yesterday dirt cheap on a local swap.
From all I can tell, this Aristocrat is almost exactly the same thing as a Quiet De Luxe except it's lacking the "quiet" sound-absorbing felt material that would line the inside of the shell, it's lacking the flip-up paper supports, it's lacking the paper-scale markings on that silver area left of the platen, and the paper bail is simplified. Other than that, it's a QDL it seems.
Case is super clean and has original manual.
This '57 types well, just like they tend to.

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal Aristocrat on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal Aristocrat By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
