1954 Remington Non Tab Portable Serial # EN152309 1954 Remington Non Tab Portable typewriter, Serial # EN152309 Tas Kyprianou's 1954 Remington Non Tab Portable typewriter. 2023-01-20 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.

Description:

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.

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 40 machines. Nice round number. Time to stop I reckon. . .

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.
