Remington manufactured 5,076 of these machines in 1935. The 3B sold for $34.50 and included an "attractive fibre cover or rubber cover if desired." The fibre cover (read: cardboard box) is highly collectible. Unfortunately, this 3B came with neither.

I own two 3Bs. The other is pristine with a glossy black body. It's an absolute beauty. (Fortunately, it included the fibre cover!) The 3B listed here, which I acquired cheaply on eBay, has a dull tone. Not sure why. Age? Or was it painted that way?

To note, the 3B and the Monarch Pioneer (the other 3 1/2 bank Remington) are essentially the same machine. I'm guessing Remington discontinued the 3B because it was too beautiful, drawing customers from more expensive models. The Monarch Pioneer, which replaced the 3B, is ugly by comparison -- and it was much cheaper.
