1968 Remington Ten Forty Serial # AY135035 1968 Remington Ten Forty typewriter, Serial # AY135035 LaDonna Qualtieri's 1968 Remington Ten Forty typewriter. 2022-08-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of LaDonna Qualtieri: 1968 Remington Ten Forty Serial # AY135035 The soft case interior foam had crumbled apart, making a mess of everything. It was easy to repair the case and then I had the machine restored by Andrew at Typewriter Rehab. The new ribbon is very inky! I like the cursive script and could not neglect this unique machine. The database indicates all SNs starting with AY are 1968. The second number is my best guess since that area gets scratched when security the machine to the case. AY 1?5035.

I have many pen pals and correspond via handwritten and typed letters. I have a (painful) sitting disability and type while standing- UPDATE! I can also type on an ultraportable I set up on my bed. Typing and collecting machines with different typefaces keeps me busy and happily distracted from the difficulties in life-fountain pens, too, and I can write legibly, in cursive, while laying down. Join me on Type Pals and register for the monthly postcard exchanges. The “Cat Mews” is a quarterly publication of the philatelic topical group Cats On Stamps Study Unit (COSSU), for which I am a column contributor. My cats are Wiffle Wizard and Urushi (Rushi) Blizzard, aka the Blizzard Sisters.
