1941 Remington 17 Serial # J364364 1941 Remington 17 typewriter, Serial # J364364 John Cooper's 1941 Remington 17 typewriter. 2019-10-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Cooper: 1941 Remington 17 Serial # J364364 According to the unusually detailed serial number records, this Remington Seventeen was manufactured in October 1941. Although it may no longer be pretty, I like the art deco stylings that include not just the decals and (now tarnished) steel and chrome, but the rounded buttons on the platen knobs. The type is extremely snappy, fast and reliable, with never a jam. The face is elite.

Resident of Portland, Oregon since 2015. Mostly interested in semi-portables of the '30s, '40s, and '50s (the late glass key top through late pre-electric eras), with a special interest in unusual or distinctive typefaces other than techno and script. Still new and always learning!
