193X Zeta Remington 16 Serial # ZZ10306 193X Zeta Remington 16 typewriter, Serial # ZZ10306 Milan Berta's 193X Zeta Remington 16 typewriter. 2023-04-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Milan Berta: 193X Zeta Remington 16 Serial # ZZ10306 An early example of a Remington 16 typewriter made in ─îeskoslovensk├í Zbrojovka, akciov├í spole─Źnost v Brn─Ť.
In my opinion, this is a rare example of a machine that was assembled in Brno from parts imported from the USA. The carriage lever is on the right side, and many other parts are also different from the later model.
The Reichsmark symbol (German currency used before and during WWII) also confirms that this is an earlier model. This symbol is not visible, it is located on the key with the number 5, see typeface specimen. The typewriter was damaged during delivery So I thank Mr. Konya for arranging for it to be repaired. Welding broken parts was a challenge that many specialists refused.

Historical typewriters, cameras, sewing machines, ... - all beautiful things, that work only on the basis of human skill and ability. Therefore, they deserve our attention and respect. I do not want to let those inventions that pushed us forward much faster than we were prepared, them disappear in this way.

Lives in Michalovce, Slovakia. Proud father of two children. Started collecting in March 2020. More a hunter than a collector or restorer. But determined to change it and bring the machines to a new life. Thank you in advance for any of your advice and help. (English is not my strong side, so I use Uncle Google's help. Correct me anytime).
