The Typewriter Database 1970s Remstar 813 (Korea) Serial # 8162133 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ton Sison: 1970s Remstar 813 (Korea) Serial # 8162133 The plastic-bodied Remstar is the first and only Korean-made typewriter I've ever encountered. I've seen a couple of electrics listed on ebay but not manuals. To my eyes, the Remstar is the lost twin of the Japan-made Silver Reed 500 of the 1970s. The Philippine Peso key (slashed "P") along with the Spanish "N" (used in colonial names) indicate that this Remstar was specifically manufactured for the Philippine market. This specimen was a gift my mom gave my dad; he used it in the 80s.
