19XX Remington Portable Serial # unknown 19XX Remington Portable typewriter, Serial # unknown James Gifford's 19XX Remington Portable typewriter. 2019-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 19XX Remington Portable Serial # unknown I already have three examples of the Remington 1/2, but I didn't have one with a math key, so I picked this up from the market. Unfortunately, it's missing some mechanisms and the back is falling off, and because I'm unable to unlock the carriage, I can't get at the serial number or try a type sample of pi. Oh well. It'll make for a nice display model.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
