1954 Remington Travel-Riter Serial # FTR122082 1954 Remington Travel-Riter typewriter, Serial # FTR122082 Carl H's 1954 Remington Travel-Riter typewriter. 2017-08-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Carl H: 1954 Remington Travel-Riter Serial # FTR122082 Bought this together with an Olivetti Lexikon 80 for 10€. This is a good machine. The mechanical condition is good, optically it has a few scratches but I don't care about this (at this price). It is a good-looking machine. I really like the ribbon spools.

The french keyboard is a bit annoying. Why do you have to shift for a dot, but not for a semicolon?

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
