1948 Remington Noiseless Portable Serial # H150171 1948 Remington Noiseless Portable typewriter, Serial # H150171 Kevin Stallaert's 1948 Remington Noiseless Portable typewriter. 2021-11-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kevin Stallaert: 1948 Remington Noiseless Portable Serial # H150171 I accidentally stumbled across this typewriter on a Dutch ad site. As a Belgian, I can only achieve prime Belgian-ness if I own at least one typewriter with a Belgian keyboard =D. It is pretty gummed up and has some minor rust spots. that's all fixable. I am however looking for a backspace key and the two main body bolts. If someone could help me out with those, it would be greatly appreciated.

I fell into the typewriter rabbit hole due to nostalgia: I used to have a massive Olympia SG1 when I was a kid. It formed my typing habits, which is why I am called a "furious typer" by my coworkers. Came across the r/typewriters page on Reddit which rekindled my love for these wonderful machines. Lets just hope I don't start pushing screens off my desk when I reach the end of a line...
