1905 Remington 7 Serial # 174945 1905 Remington 7 typewriter, Serial # 174945 Mark Schrad's 1905 Remington 7 typewriter. 2021-01-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1905 Remington 7 Serial # 174945 I bought this Remington 7 Standard typewriter from a pawn shop in North Philadelphia in January of 2018 ($18), with hopes of using it as a parts machine to restore a 1903 Remington 7 I'd purchased earlier... only to find that this one was actually in much better shape than the one I was going to use it for parts! So I did a bit of role reversal: did a complete tear-down and rebuild, and swapped out the f.o.b. and other keys from the 1903 machine into this one, and then re-built it back. It is quite a looker! Not as great as a typer, though.
