196X Remington Quiet-Riter Eleven Serial # UQ4005734 196X Remington Quiet-Riter Eleven typewriter, Serial # UQ4005734 Daniel Deary's 196X Remington Quiet-Riter Eleven typewriter. 2024-06-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Daniel Deary: 196X Remington Quiet-Riter Eleven Serial # UQ4005734 I believe this to be the last of the Quiet-Riter line with its main feature is the plastic ABS shell with a more modern design, but mechanically it is almost identical to my older 1958 Quiet-Riter. This model could be from as early of 1961, made in Great Britain from UK and USA parts. This precedes the Fleetwing which came out in 1963. It has an odd serial number with the prefix UQ (?) After some brief cleaning and several major adjustments, it types great. Think twice before removing the platen as it is a real pain. The ABS "Cycolac" plastic is known to be brittle but I have had no issues so far, but I am careful. Pica typeface.

The serial # is odd.  The UQ prefix is not in the Data base at all.  The 2nd digit I believe is a Q not an O.

Retired. Have been a Photography geek for many years...old school film. Also have been an audiophile and have been collecting vinyl before it became fashionable. Accidently(?) began collecting typewriters in the early1980's...I had four by 2006. After I inherited my mothers Hermes 3000 in 2017 my interest really took off and now I have 28 typewriters in total. The majority of my collection are Smith Corona's largely because they are plentiful, easy to work on and are very good typers.
