The Typewriter Database 195X Remington Letter-Riter Serial # ELR379257 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 195X Remington Letter-Riter Serial # ELR379257 I documented this machine that I found at a local antique shop just to build the data on Remington "Riter" models with folding line space levers.

According to the current information in the database, this British-made Letter-Riter was produced in either 1958 or 1959, which helps to maintain the theory that the folding lever design was a feature that was introduced in the later models of this generation's "Riter" machines.

One possible explanation for the fixed line space lever being replaced by a version that folds out of the way is that the change was necessitated by the introduction of a new travel case (see photo). The case did change at some point; the original travel cases for Remington "Riter" machines were basically squared-off boxes, but this machine with the folding lever has a tapered case that more closely follows the lines of the typewriter it protects.
