1923 Remington Portable Serial # NP37012 1923 Remington Portable typewriter, Serial # NP37012 Mark Petersen's 1923 Remington Portable typewriter. 2015-11-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1923 Remington Portable Serial # NP37012 Another from Equipping the Saints. This machine types amazingly well, in spite of a loose carriage and shoddy restoration job. The platen is still soft, the logos have been painted over, the drawband is modern fishing line... it's sort of a wreck except for how well it works. Perfect machine for me: not afraid to use it like a newer machine.
