1921 Remington Portable Serial # NV10728 1921 Remington Portable typewriter, Serial # NV10728 Timothy Conine's 1921 Remington Portable typewriter. 2016-08-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Timothy Conine: 1921 Remington Portable Serial # NV10728 This one I acquired from an Estate sale. The knob for raising the strikers is missing, the ribbon is dry, and it had a bent linkage for the "Z" key. While the linkage is fixed, it does occasionally stick. This was the first machine in my collection!

Without a ribbon, I can't include a typeface specimen. Eventually I will rectify that.
