1891 Remington 2 Serial # 68,420 1891 Remington 2 typewriter, Serial # 68,420 Edward Onda's 1891 Remington 2 typewriter. 2019-08-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Edward Onda: 1891 Remington 2 Serial # 68,420 This unit is in pretty rough shape. Has a damaged key linkage, that will be repaired. Lots of rust, and in serious need of cleaning and lubrication. The Leather carriage tensioning band is broken, and will need to be replaced. This is a contender for full restoration, in that it did not deserver the abuse or neglect it received, and deserves to have a second chance. ;-)

I have been collecting, restoring, and repairing, for a bit over 2 years now. The Majority of my collection is Mid and early century, and my preferred period is developing more to 19th century and early 20th. I am currently seeking more 19th century models to add to the collection.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Remington 2 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Remington Serial Number page and the Remington 2 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
