The first of my rescued typewriters. The auction photo just showed a rusty heap emerging out of a large plastic bag.
It has now typed many pages.
I know this machine was made not that long after 1931, in London as I have another with the same prefix and a dated guarantee slip. (details & pics of that one to follow)
Some minor issues, slightly bent key levers, and the occasional piling tantrum, but a great machine.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Remington Portable on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Remington Serial Number page and the Remington Portable By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
