1958 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # EQR401418 1958 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter, Serial # EQR401418 Dallas Kirkpatrick's 1958 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter. 2019-11-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dallas Kirkpatrick: 1958 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # EQR401418 I picked this one up for a whopping $2! It's in very good shape, is very clean, and types great. I especially like that it came with a lot of documentation, including the original sale record from 1960. My only real complaint is that they keys are a bit small, almost like a Lettera.

It's really too bad that Remington didn't do a little more to pretty these up a little bit (maybe like the 50's Royals?). It's kind of ugly, but very functional and easy to use.

I am a Typewriter Enthusiast from Saskatchewan, Canada!

I fell in love with typewriters around 2015, when I purchased my first (and favourite) typewriter; a mint condition, all original 1933 Imperial Good Companion. I bought it for $60 from a lady whose father used it in Vienna and North Africa during WWII. The stories connected to each machine always fascinate me, and finding old documentation or personal touches added over the years always intrigue me.

Some of my favorite machines to type are my '57 Smith-Corona Silent Super, and my '62 Olivetti Lettera.

Today, I love every aspect of typewriter hunting. I enjoy searching for good deals on specific models that interest me, doing a bunch of research about each typewriter that I get, and cleaning and using every machine that I can! I mostly prefer portables from the 20's to the late 60's.

Typewriters not currently in my collection that I would really like to have include a Hermes 2000/3000, and Olympia SM3.
