1951 Remington All-New Serial # A2137243 1951 Remington All-New typewriter, Serial # A2137243 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1951 Remington All-New typewriter. 2016-09-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1951 Remington All-New Serial # A2137243 In many ways I prefer this model to the one that replaced it - all of those reasons purely from a design standpoint. The first generation of this all new portable was a more in-your-face statement, less compromising in its intent, so much so that I can't even look at one without thinking of the last hurrah of the Art Deco movement, or in profile, of the Chrysler building in New York.
