1970’s Working Remington Performance Portable – New Ribbon, Case – Made In Japan
Working Remington Performance vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1970’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, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This black/white 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 excellent. All of the letter keys work as expected however you do need to tap them firmly. Also please note that there are minor typing marks left on the paper after typing – not significant but please refer to the photos. Other signs of use like scratches on the body of the typewriter are present.
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.
