This is a Remington Quiet-Riter of 1950s styling.  The serial number, QR3272259, is one digit longer than any other serial number I’ve found. I’ll have to do more research. This paticular example has elite type and is a sand color with dark green keys.  I have no idea of production figures, but I, personally, have [...]

This post-war Remington is branded Remington Rand on the paper tray. As with all the post-wars, it’s a model 7.  This one is serial number H152960, thus made in 1948, and has the black wrinkle finish and elite type.

This machine is Remington’s follow up to its very successful Model 1 portable.  This example was made in May, 1928.  Differences from the Model 1 include a wider panel supporting the typebars, typebar guards, and a wider carriage.  The Model 1 was usually black, but the Model 2 came in at least six color combinations.  [...]

Remington made this model using a modified version of the noiseless mechanism. The mechanism looks at first glance like a regular noiseless machine, but when using it, the clatter from the typebars striking the platen is obvious.  The mechanism is adjusted for the typebars to strike like a normal typewriter does – the weights that [...]
