1931 Remington Portable Serial # EC 24557 1931 Remington Portable typewriter, Serial # EC 24557 Martha Lea's 1931 Remington Portable typewriter. 2015-04-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Martha Lea: 1931 Remington Portable Serial # EC 24557 This will only type for half a line before being stopped by the rubber bands on the right side in place to facilitate any typing at all!
But as the typeface is so small, I can still crank out a narrow letter on it.
No case, as it was donated to my other Portable 2, but I do have the Guarantee, dated.
It seems to me that the EC prefix refers to the postcode of the factory in London where it was built.
I often see these British built machines with undated/ripped/defaced guarantees so it is nice to find this.
New feet made from nuts and bolts and plumbing washers.
