1958/1959 Royal Quiet Deluxe

This typewriter was manufactured in 1958 for the 1959 model year. Mechanically, it is very similar to the Futura, with the ribbon controls located under the ribbon cover. The Royal logo acts as the ribbon cover release.


  1. Well dang, my comment appeared in duplicate, so i deleted one of them, and of course they both disappeared! So here goes again:

    I love my Royals - all of them work decently, including the Royal No. 10 that I pulled from a neighbor's trash can in the late 1960's looking and working great. But i struggled with the ribbon cover on my much more recently acquired Futura a few times before reading somewhere that the logo was the release button. Big selfie dope slap then!

  2. I'm still seeing double - sorry about that!
