1950’s Working Remington Rand Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case
Renovated Remington Rand manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in early 1950’s. Regardless of such old age, the machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. This particular typewriter makes the typist feel almost as one with the piece they’re typing, away from the modern distractions and more focus on the ideas typed on paper. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. The British made 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 excellent. All of the letter keys work and it types very well. Please note that some of the fraction keys stick. The bell does work but often not heard fully. The wooden case has a dislocated wooden panel at the front and as a result, doesn’t close propely – please refer to the photos for further detail.
The retro Remington typewriter 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.
The vintage Remington Rand typewriter is located in London, UK.
