Adorable Mint Green 1950s Royal Quiet DeLuxe Typewriter - Great Condition and Working Well

349.99

Fabulous vintage Royal Quiet DeLuxe typewriter, in great cosmetic and mechanical condition! How not to love the pop of color that this machine brings in to any room, with its crisp minty green body with red accents. Highly desirable piece!

Cosmetically, this machine is in fabulous condition. The finish looks good, chrome details, name plates and logos look great. There is an approximately 2" scratch on the back of the machine (visible in pic 3) - somewhat faint, but should be noted.

Mechanically, this typewriter is solid and is functioning very well. Its keys have just been oiled, and the current ribbon has lots of life. I will also include an extra ribbon with this purchase if desired. Ready to go right out of the box! When I got this typewriter every last key was completely gummed up. I have cleaned each key and lubricated them with a lanolin-based machine oil. All keys are functioning - occasionally the w, l, and v keys will stick but with some good use this should stop. The only other mechanical issue to note is that the paper catch (the piece behind the platen that says "Royal Quiet Deluxe" does not fully snap into the down position, and it moves freely back to show the tab sets. This does not affect the functionality of the typewriter but should be noted. 

In any case one of my favorite typewriters to have in the shop in a long time. 

Comes with original hardcase. Owner's manual for this typewriter is available here: http://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/RoyalQDL1952.pdf

I base my typewriter prices on condition of typewriter, and desirability factors including color, condition, typeface, and rarity. I pack well using packing peanuts to ensure a smooth, gentle ride for your new machine.
