1947 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # B1 382326 1947 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter, Serial # B1 382326 Melissa Favara's 1947 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter. 2018-10-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Melissa Favara: 1947 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # B1 382326 This machine came from a great fellow who has discovered he only loves typing on an Olympia. It's recently serviced and types very easily and well. And it's beautiful. It features a gear system for the typebar instead of the linkages I'm used to and has the "Self Starter" tab key and original spool covers. I'm kind of in love.

I started collecting typewriters in 1996 when my employer at an old newsstand in Kalamazoo, MI gave me her mother's Underwood Elliot Fisher Noiseless; I love these machines and learning how to repair and maintain them. The Noiseless was the medium for a zine I wrote through the nineties and into the oughts, and my nine-year-old daughter now types regularly.
