1971 Remington Ten Forty Serial # IY 54 92 69 1971 Remington Ten Forty typewriter, Serial # IY 54 92 69 Dean Cummings's 1971 Remington Ten Forty typewriter. 2019-10-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dean Cummings: 1971 Remington Ten Forty Serial # IY 54 92 69 This model has a creamy white plastic body and a PICA typeface. I've heard people describe the keys as "chicklet-shaped," a description I rather like. Its sized somewhere between a ultra and medium portable, yet a bit heavier compared with other similar sized models. The upside of it's weight is that it is very sturdy. This is my second typewriter acquisition.
