1938 Remington Model 1 Serial # P121254 1938 Remington Model 1 typewriter, Serial # P121254 Mark Petersen's 1938 Remington Model 1 typewriter. 2018-10-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1938 Remington Model 1 Serial # P121254 Craigslist from Northern Virginia for $60. This machine is also known as the "Noisy Noiseless" because it has the noiseless mechanism but it is detuned so that it still makes noise. It is one of the loudest machines I own. It is also horrible to type on. About the only things going for this typewriter are its relative rarity and stunning good looks.

Sold to someone who will gift it to her mother as a Christmas gift. And she also said she might want one for herself... a new typospherian? We shall see.
