1956 Remington Super-Riter Serial # FJT304755 1956 Remington Super-Riter typewriter, Serial # FJT304755 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1956 Remington Super-Riter typewriter. 2018-08-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1956 Remington Super-Riter Serial # FJT304755 A project for the future, this Remington Super Riter.

This is a French made unit, with French s/n and French AZERTY layout. What´s French as well is the ton of rust it has...

The date is a wild guess, since it´s far above those here at the DB.

In theory this can be a great typewriter, maybe on par with the Royal HH, but first it needs a lot of care. Everything is in there, nothing missing nor broken, but the images speak for themselves. This machine has been neglected for quite a while, but it looks resilient enough and I´m sure it´ll come back into action as if nothing had happened.

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.
