1953 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # QR 3331986 1953 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter, Serial # QR 3331986 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1953 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter. 2018-08-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1953 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # QR 3331986 I'm not convinced that I correctly understand the database numbers for this particular typewriter. If I got it right this machine is an example of the "New Quiet-Riter" which carried on the serial numbers used by the previous generation models for a short while. According to the database it looks as though the serial number range was switched at some point during the first year of production (1953) for this model. But something isn't sitting right with me; this machine is in the 3.3 million range whereas the database lists the range starting at 2.4 million. Surely Remington didn't manufacturer close to a million of these in 1953...
