1922 Remington Portable Serial # NA29481 1922 Remington Portable typewriter, Serial # NA29481 Mark Adams's 1922 Remington Portable typewriter. 2016-09-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Adams: 1922 Remington Portable Serial # NA29481 There's nothing particularly interesting about this Remington Portable, except the serial number: it's the highest I've ever seen for any given month of production. It's assumed by collectors and researchers that the last four digits represent sequential output. The two-letter code, NA on this machine, represent the model and month of production = No. 1, December. The first digit represents year of production = 1922. That Remington manufactured as many as 9,481 machines in any one month suggests as many as 120,000 machines in any year, depending on whether or not Remington kept production at equal levels.
