1955 Remington Noiseless 7 Serial # FHT141713 1955 Remington Noiseless 7 typewriter, Serial # FHT141713 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1955 Remington Noiseless 7 typewriter. 2017-05-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1955 Remington Noiseless 7 Serial # FHT141713 A good catch, even if it doesn´t work yet.

I managed to reduce the price of this machine from an outrageous sum to something more than reasonable, so that´s a good start.

Apart from that, it´s in good general condition except for the ribbon spools (which simply aren´t there). Once solved that little delay, making it type again won´t be hard.

The date is a bit of a guess. That FHT French prefix matches the French keyboard layout, and I´ve stretched the numbers to put it in 1955. Anyway, it shouldn´t be far from there.

I´m not sure what to expect from this typewriter, but I´m satisfied with it as it is for now.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
