1898 Remington 7 Serial # 21398 1898 Remington 7 typewriter, Serial # 21398 Alex Sandler's 1898 Remington 7 typewriter. 2016-05-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alex Sandler: 1898 Remington 7 Serial # 21398 I had absolutely no intention to purchase this machine, which was up for a long trip from Ukraine to Russia. But due to some export complications, it ended up in my workshop.

All photos presented here were made in February, 2016. The machine was basement-fresh then, having suffered from a leaking pipe above, which has completely destroyed the cover and wooden base. Lots of rust, stuck carriage (and virtually anything else could be stuck), ruined feed rollers and rotten remains of ½ inch (sic!) ribbon. But otherwise the typewriter is fairly complete, missing only the “Ѣ  type. It was apparently removed in the early 1920's.

Both the base and the cover were too weak to transport, so they were left with the seller. Now the machine is being repaired (I wouldn't call this “restored ) to the operating condition.
