1929 Remington Portable 3 Serial # V147324 1929 Remington Portable 3 typewriter, Serial # V147324 Gerald Ambrose's 1929 Remington Portable 3 typewriter. 2019-04-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1929 Remington Portable 3 Serial # V147324 Bought off of EBay and thought it would be in better shape. The carriage bearings were out of position and stuck. The carriage came off by accident and went back on rather easily.
It is now working, but because the platten is toast and the back spacer is disconnected, it will not be used that often.

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