196X Remington Personal-Riter Serial # FY525727 196X Remington Personal-Riter typewriter, Serial # FY525727 Andrew Nold's 196X Remington Personal-Riter typewriter. 2024-04-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Andrew Nold: 196X Remington Personal-Riter Serial # FY525727 This beautiful typewriter was a gift from a relative. It has a great blue color and pleasing key action, but by far the star feature of this typewriter is the script font. I have gotten compliments on the looks and legibility of the "cursive" font, and I am quite pleased to have it in my letter writing arsenal. The typewriter arrived to me slightly dirty but in working order. With a bit of cleaning, it was ready to be typing again. With the cost of script typewriters, a gifted script typewriter was my only chance. I am quite happy with this machine and shall not part with it.

Description:

This beautiful typewriter was a gift from a relative. It has a great blue color and pleasing key action, but by far the star feature of this typewriter is the script font. I have gotten compliments on the looks and legibility of the "cursive" font, and I am quite pleased to have it in my letter writing arsenal. The typewriter arrived to me slightly dirty but in working order. With a bit of cleaning, it was ready to be typing again. With the cost of script typewriters, a gifted script typewriter was my only chance. I am quite happy with this machine and shall not part with it.

These keys are somewhat unique! They feel fairly pleasing to use. Note the color selecting wheel- I haven't tried bichrome ribbon, but it looks like the color selector DOES change where the ribbon is held.

The back of the typewriter declares a birthplace of Holland. There is a paper holder that can flip up. It feels fairly flimsy, but it does the job well.

This touch selector is an interesting red knob design. As usual, I really can't tell a difference in typewriter feel or action when I modify this 'parameter'
