The Typewriter Database 1930 Remington Portable Serial # V285702 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alfred Kaltenecker: 1930 Remington Portable Serial # V285702 Classic American portable typewriter, probably the first one in Europe in the early 1920ies. My model has a QUERTZ-keyboard with "ß" and is a mixture between #1 and #2 or modell A and B as it was produced for foreign countries.

It is the only typewriter in my collection with paper rollers out of shape, as the rubber got flattened under pressure :-(

Collector with typewriter virus living in Austria. Fourty years ago typewriters were only standard office equipment for me. I was really glad to get my first but simple word processors in the early Eighties with delete, copy/paste and whatever wonderful functions. This fascination is over. Now I have returned to real mechanics.
