Working, Serviced 1950s Remington Rand Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Great Britain
Working Remington Rand vintage, manual portable typewriter in London (U.K.). After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was manufactured in the 1950s. Despite being more than sixty years old, the machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and strong in sound when pressed and it gives a sensation of confidence to the typist. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, carriage lock, ribbon colour switch, the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This grey Remington typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it, without any inconvenience. 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. Minor signs of use and age are present – please refer to photos.
This intriguing Remington machine 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 would probably appeal to older generations of typists with previous experience of using a manual typewriter.
