1927 Remington Portable 2

Serial #NK-79762

Michigan antique mall purchase
The DB says manufactured in April, 1927. A green form pasted in the underside top of the case says sold June 15, 1927 by [torn off] Typewriter Co Detroit Mich. Typed well with nice loud snappy sound. Howevere don't care for the raised key bank while typing. Ribbon somewhat faded but good enough for the type specimen.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
