1933 Remington 16 Serial # Z428168 1933 Remington 16 typewriter, Serial # Z428168 Richard Polt's 1933 Remington 16 typewriter. 2018-05-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1933 Remington 16 Serial # Z428168 This machine is essentially the same as the Remington 10, the company's first frontstroke typewriter, introduced in 1908 - but this Sixteen was made in September, 1933. The model stayed in regular production until 1939, with a trickle continuing all the way into 1942 and the outbreak of the Second World War. By that time, this typewriter was truly an old-fashioned machine, which had been technically superseded in January 1939 by the all-new Model Seventeen. The 17 was the basis of the KMC and all the later standard manual Remingtons.
