This is the exact opossite of my Japy Script.
They arrived together, and while the latter is out of order, this one is in perfect condition. As soon as I opened the parcel I saw it coming. That little tag tied to the handle... Could it be...?
Yes, oh yes it is. ItÂ´s a workshop tag, what says "this typewriter is fully serviced and belongs to this person". That means this typewriter is in full working order. Everything is shining and fine tuned, and it types flawlessly. I donÂ´t know how many years this typewriter has been waiting for use after being serviced, but I feel very lucky. ItÂ´s the second time I find a just serviced typewriter, yay!
Besides, Remington typewriters are always welcome, and in fact I was eager to get one of these. TheyÂ´re common (in theory), but thing is I donÂ´t find them too often.
Much like other great manufacturers, you can recognize a Remington blindfolded just by its touch. Quality all over the place.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´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.
