196X Remington Quiet-Riter Eleven Serial # QU4026950 196X Remington Quiet-Riter Eleven typewriter, Serial # QU4026950 Amanda Wood's 196X Remington Quiet-Riter Eleven typewriter. 2024-06-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Amanda Wood: 196X Remington Quiet-Riter Eleven Serial # QU4026950 $7.99+S&H. As much as I love blue typewriters and solving puzzles, this one may end up a donor for another of this make/model in the future. Carriage advances inconsistently and erratically, carriage rails grind... I'm thinking dropped and bent. Case is in poor condition and suggesting of a drop, too. Simple Pica typeface, some cracks and chips out of the blue plastic, etc.
The only thing that really intrigued me was the new serial number prefix. No other QUs in the database as of entry.

I am quite new to the typewriter world (first bought 6/2023), but I sort of jumped right in with three typewriters in my first week. I am interested in the mechanics of manual typewriters, as well as have an affinity for cleaning up long-forgotten gems. I'm a Smith-Corona fiend, but any nice typewriter will do!
