1955 Remington Travel-Riter Serial # 129012 1955 Remington Travel-Riter typewriter, Serial # 129012 Mark Petersen's 1955 Remington Travel-Riter typewriter. 2016-09-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1955 Remington Travel-Riter Serial # 129012 Traded a Forto with Brian Brumfield for this machine, who had traded it with his son Connor who had found it for $11. So it has been already in three collectors who are on this site's hands.
It is a good typing machine. The one significant problem is a hard as rock platen, remedied for the time being by using 3 backing sheets. I am excited to finally have one of these!
