1928 Remington Portable 2 Serial # NP87821 1928 Remington Portable 2 typewriter, Serial # NP87821 Gerald Ambrose's 1928 Remington Portable 2 typewriter. 2023-09-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1928 Remington Portable 2 Serial # NP87821 Found at an antique shop and bought with the intention of servicing, but further inspection shows signs of it being dropped on the back part of the frame which is slightly damaged so it may be sometime before I get around to fully repairing it. The machine does function a little, but the shift mechanism is bent somewhere so you can only type in lowercase for now.
What caught my eye on this machine was the unique keyboard with advanceless keys.

Update - 09/19/2023 - finally got around to adjusting the lowercase and uppercase to get a type sample.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
