1940 Remington Portable 5

Serial #B87698

Remington Model 5 16 pitch 1940 - self starter key - advances about five spaces whenever used.

Small typeface which appears to be 16 characters to the inch. Typeface specimen sample includes comparison with an Olivetti Valentine pica typeface. Difficult to type with - effortlessly cuts holes in ribbon and paper, and the type needs cleaning every second line or so. Sadly there are escapement problems and the carriage jumps consistently in several places. Nonetheless a truly beautiful machine.

Assailed by dark regret having betrayed and discarded the uni-days Adler ten pitch when the Mac Classic and Nisus came along. Redemption may be possible.
