1915 Remington 10 Serial # RM54371 1915 Remington 10 typewriter, Serial # RM54371 Daniel Burgoyne's 1915 Remington 10 typewriter. 2022-07-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Daniel Burgoyne: 1915 Remington 10 Serial # RM54371 Local estate find in Orléans, Ontario, Canada. I received it as a retirement gift from my team.

As bought, it was dirty and gummy. After cleaning and oiling the tab mechanism, it is working well. Had to form the roller release lever that was bent and could not be locked. The paper table was crooked a bit.

Made in Ilion, N.Y., USA. This is a rare keyboard, with French diacritical signs (é, ç, ^, `) on keys where they are not usually located for a bilingual keyboard in Canada. I assume this predates the adoption of the standard for the French Canadian keyboard configuration.

The typeface is 10 tpi in a style that is more curvy than the regular Pica. Note that the typeface specimen sample was made using a cotton ribbon that was already on the machine when bought. With a new ribbon, it would be much darker.

Bonjour! I am from the region of Montreal, Quebec and moved to Ottawa, Ontario in 1992.

Amateur watchmaker and machinist, I love anything mechanical, hydraulic or electric. I have restored American and Canadian clocks and small lathes, milling machines and a jig bore.

Most of my typewriters have Canadian-French Qwerty keyboards, with some exception for rare finds.
