1963 Remington Monarch Serial # TRM164376 1963 Remington Monarch typewriter, Serial # TRM164376 Mark Rosenzweig's 1963 Remington Monarch typewriter. 2023-09-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Rosenzweig: 1963 Remington Monarch Serial # TRM164376 This machine features distinctive Remington touches, such as the style of the keycaps and the use of a core instead of a spool for the ribbons. The typewriter has a tabulator but no key for the number one; it does have a key for the degree and division signs. Its carriage lock control is unusual: it is the lever on the right just above the keyboard (rather than the usual place near the carriage). The typewriter was missing the color dots on the ribbon-color-selector plate; I painted some round-head nails that fit snugly in the holes, cut down the nails' length, and then glued them in place as a substitute. Made in France.

Note the red, white and blue dots on the ribbon-color-selector plate. These were a quick fix for missing ones.

I have collected typewriters since the early 1970s. My first collectible machine was a Mignon, but I also had everyday typers then, first a Voss ST-24 and an Olivetti Praxis 48, and then a Hermes 3000 and a Hermes 10. Over the last decade or so, I've turned my focus from early machines (Lambert, Blickensderfer, Hammond, Smith-Premier, etc.) to portables.

Besides typewriters, I also am avid about Studebakers, and have had a 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk since 1979.
