196x Remington Fleetwing Serial # RE 10671H 196x Remington Fleetwing typewriter, Serial # RE 10671H Michael Hoehne's 196x Remington Fleetwing typewriter. 2022-01-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 196x Remington Fleetwing Serial # RE 10671H Didn’t have much hope for this one; see in the gallery for pics of the case as found. This is an airline’s work, not a shipping company’s. The typewriter was in the case upside down but I doubt that caused this; probably the owner just tossed it back in after seeing it.

It was very dirty, too, but it cleaned up nice and it works OK.

I always associate this spool pattern with computer Data Processing spools --- I wonder if Remington did, too.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
