1946 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # B1283174 1946 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter, Serial # B1283174 Mark Schrad's 1946 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter. 2024-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1946 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # B1283174 I'm not entirely sure when or where I got this machine. It may have come as part of a lot from an occasional collector in Royersford, PA in October, 2023... but it was so dingy, it got put in the basement and quickly forgotten about. When I did dig it up, I found that, surprisingly, it typed reasonably well, even as bits of paint flaked off with every keystroke. It has subsequently been shipped-off to a still-life artist in Buffalo, NY as the subject of his paintings.
