1932 Monarch (Remington) Pioneer Serial # S11328 1932 Monarch (Remington) Pioneer typewriter, Serial # S11328 Julian Walkner's 1932 Monarch (Remington) Pioneer typewriter. 2022-01-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Julian Walkner: 1932 Monarch (Remington) Pioneer Serial # S11328 This typewriter spent the last years, or probably decades, in Zurich, Switzerland. The seller told me it belonged to her great-grandmother, who used it not only in Zurich but also in Paris, Rome, Prague and Moscow.
I'm a bit sorry that it has to work now at my home in a tiny village near Innsbruck. Getting it to Austria wasn't easy because sellers in Switzerland don't want to bother filling out customs forms. Therefore, they refuse to ship items to locations outside of Switzerland. But I offered to send her a styrofoam padded box to Switzerland, so all she had to do was put the typewriter in the box. (I highly recommend this process if you're worried about packaging). Slightly extra money to fill out the customs forms convinced her to send it to me. It saved me a 7 hour drive and I was happy to pay more for this service. Overall, it doubled the original price, but it was worth every cent. Not only is the typewriter immaculate and clean, it has what makes me very happy, this very bold typeface that I wanted to have in my collection.
Don't be fooled by the bold letters - it's 10 cpi
Determining the year of manufacture was easy thanks to Richard Polt's comprehensive overview of Remington Portables.

I bought my first typewriter so that while I was learning Italian, I wouldn't have to write every sentence and word by hand. Now I am surrounded by 5 Olivetti machines ... they seem to be attracted to my new language skills.
