Unfortunately, I couldn't find any serial number on this thrift store sighting. It was very heavy and not working. Still, an interesting encounter.

This "Remington" is a Brother JP-4 type electric (see the Brother database).

I note that it has manual carriage return -- primitive for the time, and this is probably a reason why it is pretty scarce today.
