Michigan antique mall purchase. A surprise was the machine came in a blue color. Per Richard Polt's The Classic Typewriter Page, Remington Portables, the color name is "Colette and Endowa Blue." The gold leaf lettering on the blue looks nice. A 4-bank with typebar guards. Lever on right side lowers and raises the typebars for putting machine in case and making it operable for typing.
SOLD to a friend 16 Oct 2017.
Hunter: Tom Beauvais (TomA2Mich)
Status: Typewriter Hunter
Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
