196X Remington Super-Riter Serial # TJ 405787 196X Remington Super-Riter typewriter, Serial # TJ 405787 James Grooms's 196X Remington Super-Riter typewriter. 2024-06-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Grooms: 196X Remington Super-Riter Serial # TJ 405787 The painted Italian. I always wanted to bead blast a Standard or S-R and paint it, because under the dull drab crinkle is a great typewriter. Too bad Remington waited until the end and offshored this fantastic looking and typing machine.

The Italian plant was in Naples. The French one in Lyons. I found a 1962 article about phasing out Lyons and moving the portables to Holland and the standards to Naples.

When this hit the radar, it was all hands on deck. Super clean with some minor kinks to work out and....yes...I am super excited about this one.

As with many, the bug is back there somewhere due to an Underwood No. 5. My grandfather was on a small town school board and used one for this. My parents had a yellow Royal Safari that I used to index card everything, including a beer can collection. Collection syndrome clue! The long dormant tic was activated when my neighbors left a Remington Quiet Riter on the curb when they moved in circa 2010, Yes a believe it or not story is next, when a Hermes 3000 comes home with the girlfriend from work for free. Yes, free! From there the addiction is full steam. And yes, I now have a No. 5. Typewriters are the perfect blend of using one's technical skills, history and functional purpose.
