1903 Remington 7 Serial # 18841 1903 Remington 7 typewriter, Serial # 18841 Alan Seaver's 1903 Remington 7 typewriter. 2017-04-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alan Seaver: 1903 Remington 7 Serial # 18841 The No. 7 is probably the most commonly found of Remington's "blind" typewriters, about 250,000 having been sold. It differs from the No.6 primarily in the number of keys, having 42 vs the 6's 38.

The one shown here is a highly uncommon German-language version, in the even scarcer Fraktur typeface. This #7 was probably intended for the domestic German-speaking market. Indeed, the No.7 was originally intended as a variant of the No.6 fitted for foreign languages, the additional keys being necessary for diacritical marks, etc. Of course, other uses within the English language were soon found for the extra keys, and it wasn't long before the No.7 outpaced sales of the No.6 within the American market.
