30 minutes after my last post, someone out bid me. But I am determened to get a manual typewriter so I will persevere. I just bid on a early 50's Royal Quite De Luxe that lookes like it is in very good condition, just needs a little cleaning. I gave my self a maxium of $30, which means that I can only bid $15 because of shipping. The only reason I bid $30 on the Everest was because the store that was selling it was close by, so I could have picked it up in store insead of having it shipped to me. I hope that no one wants that Royal.
