1956 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # QR 2831456 1956 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter, Serial # QR 2831456 Mark Petersen's 1956 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter. 2018-08-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1956 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # QR 2831456 Found for $10 and pretty ugly with scuffs and marks and a discolored patch where a piece of cardboard with ribbon order #s was taped. But, it types better than the one I have, just a little. Thought I would sell this one, but I am going to take the case from the other and keep this machine in it. This came with the unadorned green felt case, and interestingly has less keys than the other. The other must have been upscale.
Only need one Quiet Riter, but what a great machine to sit and write with!
Oddly, the stupid looking 8 I associate with Underwoods is present on this machine.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
