1947 Remington 17 Serial # J1560393 1947 Remington 17 typewriter, Serial # J1560393 Jonathan Sprung's 1947 Remington 17 typewriter. 2023-12-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Sprung: 1947 Remington 17 Serial # J1560393 Even though it was in rough shape, (keys discoloured/worn, and missing) the guts of it are solid. It's a workhorse, a monster of a desktop machine, and it needs a good cleaning, but I could easily throw in paper and write a letter or a novel without hesitation.

I have been collecting typewriters all my life, starting with a 1980's Brother Charger 11 (which I no longer have, but have replaced with an identical machine). I have well over 60 typewriters now, with a few rare portables. Some are interesting or odd, but most of mine are common machines.

My wife and I have made a deal, that I can keep buying typewriters if she can keep buying shoes. Fair enough! *shrugs*
