19XX Remington Portable 2

I already have three examples of the Remington 1/2, but I didn't have one with a math key, so I picked this up from the market. Unfortunately, it's missing some mechanisms and the back is falling off, and because I'm unable to unlock the carriage, I can't get at the serial number or try a type sample of pi. Oh well. It'll make for a nice display model.

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.
