1926 Remington Portable Serial # NE60015 1926 Remington Portable typewriter, Serial # NE60015 James Gifford's 1926 Remington Portable typewriter. 2019-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1926 Remington Portable Serial # NE60015 In as close to mint condition as you're going to get. The case is a little dinged and is missing the handle. The paint and stencilling are as fresh as the day it was manufactured. Types very well. And I love that it proudly sports the "Made at Toronto, Canada." label that also reads, on the outside of the red circle, "To Save Time Is to Lengthen Life."

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
