1941 Remington 17 Serial # J334312 1941 Remington 17 typewriter, Serial # J334312 Mark Schrad's 1941 Remington 17 typewriter. 2022-10-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1941 Remington 17 Serial # J334312 I got this 1941 Remington 17--with the ridiculously wide 27" platen--not far from where I work in Villanova, PA back in 2014 or 2015. I even transported it on my little Vespa-like scooter! It has no lid, but it is really an amazing machine. It has taken up a big chunk of my office space ever since, which is probably why I never uploaded it to the database until 2022. It types surprisingly well... for something that looks like it should be lobbing field artillery at nazis in WWII.
