1930’s Working Remington Monarch 5 Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in USA
Working Remington Monarch 5 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1930’s. Regardless of such old age, the machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, carriage lock, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This beige Remington typewriter is fitted with a new ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is good. The keys type well and the machine functions as a whole. Though please note that some of the keys are damaged. Also the upper half of the letters is not being printed properly. Other signs of use and age are present – please refer to the photos.
This intriguing Remington word processor would be ideal for writers and authors, especially in the creative field. It will also be a unique gift. Due to the style and the aesthetics of the typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
