1907 Remington 7 Serial # 209592 1907 Remington 7 typewriter, Serial # 209592 Mark Petersen's 1907 Remington 7 typewriter. 2017-04-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1907 Remington 7 Serial # 209592 Won for $122 on eBay this is the third most expensive machine in my collection. I just had to have a blindwriter though, and finally one was affordable. These are really neat machines and it is so easy to see how everything in them works. Half the mechanical parts are wooden though, and this machine has seen a LOT of wear over the years, so I seldom type on it. The huge ribbon cost twice as much as a normal one. I love the print, too bad the margins are stiff, I don't want to force anything on this fragile machine.
