1935 Remington Compact Portable Serial # EC 51210 1935 Remington Compact Portable typewriter, Serial # EC 51210 Piotr Trumpiel's 1935 Remington Compact Portable typewriter. 2014-08-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Piotr Trumpiel: 1935 Remington Compact Portable Serial # EC 51210 Model 2. Reasonably good condition - paint loss in a few places and the felt from underneath the typebars is worn out so quite a few of them hit the metal on return. I'd like to replace it at some point - the visual side will also benefit from this I think as I would imagine the arc of the raised typebars will become nice and smooth.

I bought it with a broken carriage line - this is really the machine with the easiest access to the spring drum I've encountered so far so the fix and adjustment was quick and easy.
