I was told this typewriter was in working condition, and I thought yeah, like most of these century old machines. They just work on the surface, that is, keys move (maybe the carriage doesnÂ´t), and the seller either honestly thinks it works or youÂ´re gonna be scammed.
But this thing works perfectly.
And this thing is a perfect showcase for most of functions inside a typewriter. Since everything is exposed you can see how everything works, and whatÂ´s more important, you get and idea on how visible typewriters appeared. The Pittsburgh was pure common sense, but this one is the leap forward. Many things would change until we got the "usual" typewriter: the ribbon spools, the return lever at the right... But mostly everything is in there.
After getting my curiosity sparked with such a clear vision of such an early typewriterÂ´s innards, I started typing a bit, and it works. Period. Nothing here to complain, which means thereÂ´s a lot to cheer about. I try to compare similar typewriters I have, and in this case the Remington 10 faces tough competition: Underwood 3, Adler 7 and Corona 3.
I find it waaaaay easier to use than the Adler 7, and a bit faster. As for the Corona 3, the little portable is nowhere near the Remington 10 in terms of performance (even being fully restored). The Underwood 3 is a different story. Overall, IÂ´d say itÂ´s better than the Remington 10 because itÂ´s so "modern". YouÂ´d never tell itÂ´s a century old, it looks newer, and in fact everything seems a bit more advanced. But the Remington 10 is pure joy. Using it is really entertainig, takes you back in time. And a big fat bonus: the noise!!!
As I said with the Adler 7, this is a typewriter everybody should try. A great, great model.
One final thing: Lokking at the serial numbers here, it should be 1915, but thereÂ´s a tiny little problem: that RH prefix which I donÂ´t know where to put. Any idea?

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.
A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
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.
