1956 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # QR3005873 1956 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter, Serial # QR3005873 John Cooper's 1956 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter. 2021-06-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Cooper: 1956 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # QR3005873 Unexceptional Quiet-Riter that I passed on rather than take the trouble to clean. This model is currently by far the easiest to find in my area, and while I appreciate its workhorse quality--Quiet-Riters seem second only to Olympia SG1s in their ability to keep going after decades of neglect and abuse--I don't enjoy the aesthetics or its distinctive whirr and clack.

Resident of Portland, Oregon since 2015. Mostly interested in semi-portables of the '30s, '40s, and '50s (the late glass key top through late pre-electric eras), with a special interest in unusual or distinctive typefaces other than techno and script. Always learning!
