1954 Remington Non Tab Portable Serial # EN152309 1954 Remington Non Tab Portable typewriter, Serial # EN152309 Tas Kyprianou's 1954 Remington Non Tab Portable typewriter. 2022-04-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1954 Remington Non Tab Portable Serial # EN152309 To me, one of the prettiest machines out there. Something about the lines and the curves and everything just makes me want to leave it out of its case on the desk behind me. It's equally beautiful to type on, light and fast, and I can't understand why these machines aren't more highly regarded. They are really easy to take apart and work on too making the purchase of an "untested' machine (as this was) a lot less of a gamble. The only drawback I can see is the "battery acid" style white marks where I assume the galvanising or whatever has begun to fail. Easily polished out though so no biggy.

UK member living in London with Greek Cypriot heritage.
New to the hobby - December 2021. The Linea 88 parts machine notwithstanding, my collection now stands at 19 machines (how did that happen?!).
My prettiest machine is an everlasting tussle between my Smith Corona Clipper and my Remington Non-Tab Portable. Like Bagpuss, they're both saggy and a bit loose at the seams but I love them. The utterly astonishing Blue Bird 18b has toppled my long-standing King of Typers, the Adler Universal. My Hermes 3000 Mk 3, 2000, the FACIT TP1, and the other Olympia SMs all regularly chomp at the heels of my top two typers and I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have collected such a beautiful bunch if I'm honest.
