1948 Remington Noiseless 7 Serial # H179288 1948 Remington Noiseless 7 typewriter, Serial # H179288 John Munroe's 1948 Remington Noiseless 7 typewriter. 2018-08-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1948 Remington Noiseless 7 Serial # H179288 "Smiley"

Appears to be little used so in great shape except for dirt and a bit of rust from lengthy storage. Action is a bit stiff especially the shift mechanism but a cleaning should fix it. Rust on the right paper table has caused a bit of paint loss. Otherwise mint. Draw string is slack - might need replacement. Key was included in the case, and a typing booklet and keyboard explanation sheet. I love this typer! Pica.

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
