Fully Restored 1930 Remington Portable 3 Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in USA


London Typewriters are pleased to present for sale a spectacular Remington typewriter of the 1930 vintage, which was built with excellence, in the USA.

The Remington has been thoroughly restored and works very well. All the mechanisms are intact and the light keys work smooth and type evenly, this makes the whole typing process enjoyable and effortless. At the end of every line there is an exciting ‘Ding’ sound letting you know that it’s time to move to the next line.

There is a new black ink ribbon installed and the Remington is ready to go. A complementary black/red ribbon will be provided. To use a different colour, the ribbon colour switch needs to be engaged and moved manually from one colour to another. The original case, which comes with the machine, has a hand-made handle.

It is worth noting that the metal rim keys are protected with glass to prevent the letters from wear. It is amazing that the quality of chrome detailing is still almost intact, unaffected with age and use.

Overall condition is very good. The typewriter works as intended and the keys work without sticking. Minor signs of age and use are present. Please note that London Typewriters has decided not to overpaint the typewriter and leave it truly original, even though there are some signs of previous use given the typewriter’s age – please refer to photos. As expected, the colour of the metal inside the machine had changed over the years. However, the typewriter was thoroughly cleaned. Also, the case has been restored.

The Remington is an excellent choice of typewriter for any professional or a connoisseur collector. It would be a great addition to any collection. The typewriter is suitable for use by typists with any level of typing skill and ability, from new beginners to experienced professionals.

Enjoy the Remington!
