I got this from the same man who sold me his green Remington Portable 2. I sold it with the intention of replacing it with what I think to be its prettier brother, the De Luxe, though I still haven't found one of those yet.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
