1959 Remington Travel-Riter Serial # TR 605051 1959 Remington Travel-Riter typewriter, Serial # TR 605051 Barbara DeMarco-Barrett's 1959 Remington Travel-Riter typewriter. 2017-11-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Barbara DeMarco-Barrett: 1959 Remington Travel-Riter Serial # TR 605051 Bought this on eBay (11/2017) and of course the listing said it was clean, but no. Not clean. Just took it apart and cleaned it. The action is a bit stiff for me so I just listed on Craigslist. I wish it were snappier as it's such a cute machine.

Sold for 80.00 on 11/16//17 to a woman who is homeschooling her little girl and wanted it for her. I cleaned it first and she's happy.
