1947 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # B1503130 1947 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter, Serial # B1503130 Tom Beauvais's 1947 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter. 2024-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tom Beauvais: 1947 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # B1503130 Clinton, Illinois antique mall purchase. Came with case. Nice visual effect when typing with the way the typebars come up and then make a nice strong striking sound. The "J" key is right next to the "H" key and the "N" key is below the level of the "B" and "M" keys but did not interfere with doing the typeface. The ribbon was fresh and the type seemed aligned really well. Now if the machine only had glass keycaps instead of the plastic.
Not sure what the "Self-start" key is for. There was good design thought out for the carriage return, carriage release, and paper release levers making for easy grasp with the fingers. SOLD to a friend 16Oct2017.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
