1926 Remington Portable 2

Serial #NE60015

In as close to mint condition as you're going to get. The case is a little dinged and is missing the handle. The paint and stencilling are as fresh as the day it was manufactured. Types very well. And I love that it proudly sports the "Made at Toronto, Canada." label that also reads, on the outside of the red circle, "To Save Time Is to Lengthen Life."

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.
