1952 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # QR2432448 1952 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter, Serial # QR2432448 John Abbott's 1952 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter. 2020-05-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Abbott: 1952 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # QR2432448 1132. Picked this up from the local Goodwill. I need to get rid of the white discoloration on the space bar and a few other places. Otherwise a very nice addition.
According to the database, they switched to the "QR" prefix serial number in 1953. However, this is a "QR" prefix, but the serial number puts it as 11/1952.

I started my collection back in 2017 when I found a 1993 Brother WP-1250, which was very close to the typewriter I owned and used to write letters home while I was stationed in Korea serving in the US Air Force (I later discovered it was most likely the Brother WP-1150, so I picked that up). In 2018, my wife took me to one of the local antique store and I saw an old typewriter that caught my eye. My wife purchased it for me for Christmas (a 1932 Royal 10). My wife and I decided to limit my collection to 5 typewriters, so I need to sell off my surplus.
