I bought this machine before the Hermes off of Ebay.
I had honestly regretted selling my first Standard 10 and had been actively looking for another.
I found this one fairly cheaply, not working, as-is. I couldn't go wrong and once it was home (with the only damage being the ribbon cranks, which I am not concerned with because I have had MUCH worse) I got it to work by adding some feet and fixing a spring.
It definitely needs a good cleaning, but it will be a nice machine when that is done.
I am confused by the 'S' after the serial number. Curiously, the '67' seems to be different from the '1899.'
The design of this machine is quite different from my 1918 Remington Standard 10, but I can tell that I am going to like using this machine.
I may have to think about getting the platen redone as I was not expecting the crack in it. The feed rollers, flattened with time, still feed paper with no issue!
Update 7/15/2017 - I have been cleaning this machine up and it is coming along well. I 'routed' the metal draw band the way I believe it was supposed to originally (under the escapement wheel's shaft opposed to over it) and that seems to work better. Also there is a pivot on the back for the escapement that was loose that, once adjusted, fixed an issue I was having with the back spacer working sporadically.
Its getting there, but I have to clean the key levers again, they seem to keep getting a bit gummed up.
Left the collection on 4/2/2018.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Remington 10 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Remington Serial Number page and the Remington 10 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
