1922 Remington Portable Serial # NS20464 1922 Remington Portable typewriter, Serial # NS20464 Gerald Ambrose's 1922 Remington Portable typewriter. 2019-10-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1922 Remington Portable Serial # NS20464 Found this machine at the same shop as the Underwood Noiseless 77. I actually left the shop and then came back for it!
It had an issue with the ribbon advance pawl where the fork had slipped out of the shaft that actuates it. After messing with that, the machine works very well, but it is quite loud.

Pictures and type sample to follow.

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