1965 Remington Monarch Serial # MY467406 1965 Remington Monarch typewriter, Serial # MY467406 Kewin Sanfridsson's 1965 Remington Monarch typewriter. 2023-11-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kewin Sanfridsson: 1965 Remington Monarch Serial # MY467406 Here we have a very nice machine in good shape from the middle of the 20th century. It's a Remington Monarch from 1965 which I haven't looked up where it was manufactured yet! Though If I had to guess I would say maybe West-Germany which the case states it's from. But the machine itself could of course be from elsewhere like America, isn't Remington a American brand? I promise I will read up a bit on the Remington brand now that I have a machine from it.

But back to the typewriter though! I really enjoy the look of it with curves all over the it. The colour scheme/palette is so sleek and matches the rest of the look of the typewriter. The font on "Monarch" also looks very appealing as well with the continuing line from the last leg on the "M" leading to Remington on the front plate. At first I didn't like the keys very much but the more I typed on it the more I started to like both the look and feel of the keys. I think the best way of describing the feel when typing of it would be a hot knife cutting through butter all smooth if that makes any sense? I also do love the x shaped paper rest on it, it all ways feels a bit extra or lavishly like more exclusive if I may say so. Something quite interesting is the key setup of this typewriter, ok I have finally accepted that that there are usually are no number "1" key so I have to type a lower case L key but this machine didn't have a "0" key either instead it has a exclamation mark and a half sign added to the overall characters and to write a zero you have to type a upper case "O" But there where one other thing I was not familiar with and that was where the serial number was located on the machine. Can you guess where? Of course underneath at the backend. I never seen a serial number placed underneath at the backend before so I did actually have to investigate where it was. Otherwise I totally recommend this machine to anyone who love to sit down and write at hours on end. (Ok I haven't yet! But I will actually sit down very soon and write something a bit longer on it myself.)

Hi my name is Kewin and I'm a 23 years old from Sweden. I have a few hobbies like drawing and playing guitar but I do also like myself some project here and there which is where my interest in typewriters fits in. I have always collected things through my life but I did not expect typewriters to be my next big passion in collecting. I started collecting typewriters in the beginning of 2022 and so far I have 52 of them (3 of which is currently disassembled) . I find it really enjoyable to pickup a typewriter at a thrift store/second hand and starting to clean it up and get it to a working condition to the best of my ability and knowledge. (Excuse all the dog hairs in my pictures, I do actually try to remove the hair before taking the pictures. xD) Cheers!
