1938 Remington Model 1 Serial # PD161719 1938 Remington Model 1 typewriter, Serial # PD161719 James Gifford's 1938 Remington Model 1 typewriter. 2019-08-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1938 Remington Model 1 Serial # PD161719 I've never seen a Model One in person and was thrilled to pick this up. I'd just bought two other typers at a market and a picker put this down on the counter and I bought it for $70 before it was officially for sale. I like the styling and it should clean up nicely. It needs a drawstring repair. I'm looking forward to typing on the Noisy Noiseless.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
