1940 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-953099 1940 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # A-953099 Bryan Steckler's 1940 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2020-06-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Bryan Steckler: 1940 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-953099 My Royal QDL in chocolate brown. This is the only typewriter I have not purchased in person, and the one I was most eager to find. It's a rare example with the "Vogue" typeface. I bought it in non working condition and were it not for the typeface, this would have been a parts machine as it had a damaged escapement wheel. Many thanks to the folks at Philly Typewriter for repairing this machine, it types smooth as butter.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal Quiet De Luxe on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal Quiet De Luxe By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
