1927 Remington Portable Serial # NL 72381 1927 Remington Portable typewriter, Serial # NL 72381 Nick Bodemer's 1927 Remington Portable typewriter. 2019-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick Bodemer: 1927 Remington Portable Serial # NL 72381 I found this typewriter in an antique shop in Richland, WA. It was sold or serviced by Beverly Hills Typewriter between 1940 and 1956. I'll try to narrow it down more

From Richard Polt "Good find, Nick!

It was available in ivory, like this, but I see them very rarely. I'm attaching a pic of one that I saw last year, which was exported to the Netherlands. Note that the ribbon spools are painted, which does seem to suggest that it's some kind of special edition. I don't have any further documentation.

best,
Richard"

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Remington Portable on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Remington Serial Number page and the Remington Portable By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
