The Typewriter Database 1948 Remington KMC Serial # J1483261 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1948 Remington KMC Serial # J1483261 I was reluctant to purchase this machine as the 'r,' 'f,' and 't' keys did not work and I was not sure what I was getting into as it came from Ebay.

Update 2-4-2017: correction, this machine dates to 1948.

Also, I have noticed that my machine has round shift keys instead of oval ones. Also, the cover does not have a 'ridge' on the bottom of it as most usually do.
This machine has a mathematical/scientifical keyboard. I will post a picture of it soon.


Update - 2/26/2017 - I have to say that I am not a big fan of this machine. While I do like the many features it has, the key action is heavy until you get a rhythm and move quickly. For me touch typing on this machine is uncomfortable. I have cleaned it so I don't think that that is the issue.

Compared to Underwoods and Royals, for me, this machine has many good features such as the unjam lever, the long carriage return lever, and the KMC feature, but the heavy key action lets it down for me.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
