1911 Remington 12 Serial # Z147353 1911 Remington 12 typewriter, Serial # Z147353 Gerald Ambrose's 1911 Remington 12 typewriter. 2018-08-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1911 Remington 12 Serial # Z147353 Spotted this unique Remington last week at an antique store that I have been in before, but have not been to in a few years. It appears to be a 'mil' machine as it only types in capitals.

It is pretty rough, but it was interesting to note that my grandfather almost bought it to use as a display piece, however the seller still wanted more than he wanted to spend.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
