1932 Remington Noiseless 8 Serial # E11161 1932 Remington Noiseless 8 typewriter, Serial # E11161 Gerald Ambrose's 1932 Remington Noiseless 8 typewriter. 2016-09-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1932 Remington Noiseless 8 Serial # E11161 I spotted this Noiseless 8 several years back, on Ebay. I believe it worked and I tried to get it... but, ended up, regrettably, losing.

But something caught my eye on this particular Noiseless 8. It had a switch on the right side of the frame.

While reading this passage (http://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/remingtonnoiseless8.html) about the Remington Noiseless 8 by Richard Polt, I remembered reading that the early Noisless 8s had a "switch/button that could turn it from a noiseless to a noisy typewriter."

According to the serial number I believe it was the 61st in production.

If you look at one of the pictures below you will see the switch that caught my attention.

I do wonder where it went....

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