1913 Remington 10 Serial # 274,341 1913 Remington 10 typewriter, Serial # 274,341 Royal Taylor's 1913 Remington 10 typewriter. 2018-08-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Royal Taylor: 1913 Remington 10 Serial # 274,341 Beautiful Remington 10 Standard! The first Visible Remington!

This machine took a lot of work to get it typing as you see it in the video below. The R and T keys still have a spacing problem that we couldn't quite fix.

The graphics on this machine are excellent but it takes quite a lot of force to type on it! A great workout until you get used to it.

It's awesome to type on a 100 year old machine!

Note the different feet.  When we received this machine one of the feet had been broken off.  We found a rubber stopper that was a similar size then ground it down to fit the hole.

The serial number which looks to have been hand stamped.  I can just imagine the craftsman doing it over 100 years ago!
