1948 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # B 1392111 1948 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter, Serial # B 1392111 Mark Petersen's 1948 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter. 2018-10-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1948 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # B 1392111 This is an extremely attractive typewriter with a good touch which types awful. I got it from eBay for $58. I only use it occasionally, particularly when I am writing for someone who I think might prefer an "authentic" looking typewritten page with a lot of character over a page which is more legible.
Update: The previous owner had put on an oddly thick ribbon. I replaced it and it types clearly like any other machine now.

Sold to a Virginia Tech engineering student who wanted a typewriter. I chose to sell this because I bought a Streamliner and having both seemed redundant.
