I purchased this typewriter from a nice couple in Massachusetts on December 9th, 2016, after driving for at least two hours on a very dark and cold night. It came with a free pamphlet denouncing evolution and claiming that fossilized records and skeletons are all fake. Very interesting. Immediately vanished somewhere in my car.
Except for the paper table and a small spot of paint where the platen carrier attaches to the carriage, this machine is in phenomenal condition and perfect working order. It must have been rebuilt or restored at some point because, coupled with the total lack of rotten varnish, the overall condition is *too* good to be all 1896 original. A++ to the rebuilder.
Unfortunately, due to what I believe was an extremely hot (but not humid) storage environment, the paper table is flaking beyond what I can repair at this time. It has been removed, sealed in a bag, and put to the side for safekeeping. I hope to either have the paint flakes reattached or to find a replacement at some point. The frame's paint exhibits some spiderweb cracking as well, but still displays nicely.

I inherited two Royal KMMs as a kid. Over a decade later I started actively collecting and repairing in 2015 shortly after discovering the existence of "weird" typewriters like the Blickensderfer and Hammond, and finding a destroyed Super Sterling to experiment on.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Remington 6 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Remington Serial Number page and the Remington 6 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
