The Typewriter Database 196X Remington Premier Serial # unknown From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 196X Remington Premier Serial # unknown I can't much information on this little portable, and I can't for the life of me find the serial number. I've taken it apart--the entire top of the plastic case comes off in one piece--and have looked inside, outside, everywhere, but I can't find it. I did discover that though the typewriter was manufactured in Holland, the plastic shell mentioned above was made in West Germany. But no serial number that I can find! The case, though it doesn't seem to be broken, is very difficult to unlatch. I had someone over who was considering buying it, back when I was unsuccessfully selling down the fleet, and we spent 15 minutes trying to get it open. I did get it open, but now I'm not too anxious to put the lid back on, at least until I figure out the serial number.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
