1940 Remington Portable 5 Serial # V975724 1940 Remington Portable 5 typewriter, Serial # V975724 rock harris's 1940 Remington Portable 5 typewriter. 2017-04-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of rock harris: 1940 Remington Portable 5 Serial # V975724 Another one that's perfect on the outside, but dirty on the inside. The keytops threw me for a loop at first because they are black. I have another Rem 5, and its keytops are the typical silver.

Need to get the platen sanded or replaced. Only problem with it is that the paper doesn't feed very well. Other than that, I have no complaints.

Spent a bit much on it, but for one in such good condition, I consider it worth it.

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....
