1926 Remington Portable Serial # NC69419 1926 Remington Portable typewriter, Serial # NC69419 Jonathan Sprung's 1926 Remington Portable typewriter. 2023-12-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Sprung: 1926 Remington Portable Serial # NC69419 This machine has been on my wish list for some time, and I was lucky enough to find one at auction a good distance away. This one was exported to Munich, and survived the second world war in the heartland of Nazi Germany. It is a qwertz machine, which takes a bit of getting used to. Types well. Clean. Had to reconstruct the case because of successive generations of owner who did not know how to lock the carriage, leaving the right hand platen knob out, and mashing the case down.

I have been collecting typewriters all my life, starting with a 1980's Brother Charger 11 (which I no longer have, but have replaced with an identical machine). I have well over 60 typewriters now, with a few rare portables. Some are interesting or odd, but most of mine are common machines.

My wife and I have made a deal, that I can keep buying typewriters if she can keep buying shoes. Fair enough! *shrugs*
