1956 Royal Quiet Deluxe
Up for sale is an absolutely stunning Royal Quiet Deluxe in Cherry Red which was manufactured in 1956. In addition to Royal's normal crinkle finish in gray/dark brown shades, Royal also offered their popular Quiet Deluxe in Robin Egg blue, Bubblegum pink, and Cherry red. This machine looks great on its own, but collecting all three colors and keeping them together makes for an impressive collection of extremely iconic '50s typewriters, although these machines are getting even more valuable and hard to find as the years go on.
This typewriter itself is in near mint shape all around. The paint is just about flawless, with just a very few select areas of spotting (see all pictures). The machine is also fully functional right down to the bell and is an excellent machine to write on. The tweed carrying case is also in great shape and is a nice compliment to this machine.

Universal ribbons which are sold on this site fit this machine perfectly, making it extremely easy to keep it typing for years to come.
This machine pretty much has it all covered; from appearance, ease of use, reliability- this is an excellent machine all around and belongs in any typewriter collection.
