1900 Remington 6 Serial # 67501 1900 Remington 6 typewriter, Serial # 67501 Mark Schrad's 1900 Remington 6 typewriter. 2022-08-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1900 Remington 6 Serial # 67501 This badly beaten-up Remington 6 came from a rickety mobile home in Union, Nebraska in the fall of 2018. A friend of mine picked it up for me and--after a few blizzard delays--I got my hands on it in July of 2019. It is currently undergoing a complete tear-down and re-paint job. EDIT: Well, after three years of on-again, off-again work, the Blue Six is largely done. The type needs to be calibrated and the pinstripes need to be redone, but for the most part, I can sit back and enjoy viewing it in all its splendor. The hardest part was stripping, sanding, staining, sanding, varnishing, sanding, varnishing.... .... ... each and every keylever so that the original wood could finally see the light of day. August 2022.
