Reported to have been Hemingway's favorite model of typewriter, the Royal Quiet DeLuxe is revered as one of the best portable typewriters of its time. According to the serial number, this particular style dates to 1948. Finish is gun metal gray and it features glass topped keys. Case is a goldish-brown color with a tweed like pattern.

The typewriter appears to be in very good condition. There is no noticeable damage to the finish. All buttons and keys work, although "J" and "M" tend to stick. There is no ribbon in the typewriter, but all keys do strike the platen. Ribbons for vintage typewriters can still be found through online sources. Typewriter measures approx. 12" wide (not including the carriage return.) It is approx. 11" from front to back and 6" high. Case measures 12.5" x 12" x 7".
