1956 Remington Quiet-Riter

Serial #QR2831456

Found for $10 and pretty ugly with scuffs and marks and a discolored patch where a piece of cardboard with ribbon order #s was taped. But, it types better than the one I have, just a little. Thought I would sell this one, but I am going to take the case from the other and keep this machine in it. This came with the unadorned green felt case, and interestingly has less keys than the other. The other must have been upscale.
Only need one Quiet Riter, but what a great machine to sit and write with!
Oddly, the stupid looking 8 I associate with Underwoods is present on this machine.
