1928 Remington Portable

Serial #ND80219

This one puzzles me a bit. I'd initially thought it a Portable No 1, given that it's missing the right shift key, but the serial number shows it to be a much later production that I would have thought, and possibly (even probably) not a 1 at all. This machine sat mostly unused in someone's cottage in northern Ontario, Canada, for decades.

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.
