The Typewriter Database 194x Remington Portable Serial # 623716 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 194x Remington Portable Serial # 623716 Sighted at MTE, but I forgot what model it was and didn't take a pic of the paper table, and the serial number has no prefix - thus I don't know what Model it is.

Clearly a late 40's, possibly very early 50's model. Anyone have an ID for it? It's outside the range of the "ALL New" portables and the 1949 model, so I'm at a loss.

Striking appearance, oddly colored keys, neat teardrop ribbon spool covers, and the drab, grey case opens to reveal stunning red snakeskin-style interior. The carriage release/platen tension release levers are also very neat. Unlike any I've seen before.
