This is a lovely working Royal Quiet De Luxe model portable in a two tone charcoal and granite grey colour and was made in 1948 in the US. These models are relatively rare as they were only made for a year. It has tombstone shaped keys with off white letters and numbers. This one comes with the standard Royal left hand magic margin feature and under the ribbon cover you have the touch control to the front left side. It has the Royal logo in on the front, the Quiet De Luxe badge on the carriage and the logo and manufactures details on the back. The silver chrome work is in a nice condition and the paintwork is also in a good condition with just a few marks in places.
This model has the slightly larger "pica" sized type face giving you 10 letters to the inch.
This typewriter has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and is fitted with a new top quality American made Group 9 TW1 ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.
We can supply Group 9 TW1 typewriter ribbons from $13.90 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options on Universal spools.

This is a wonderful working 1940's Royal typewriter.
