1971 Remington Ten Forty Serial # IY547458 1971 Remington Ten Forty typewriter, Serial # IY547458 Jonathan Sprung's 1971 Remington Ten Forty typewriter. 2023-01-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Sprung: 1971 Remington Ten Forty Serial # IY547458 I bought this machine because it reminded me of Space Odyssey, with its clean white shell. It types well, and can be temperamental with the carriage return, requiring a bit of care, but otherwise it's a good machine to use.

I have been collecting typewriters all my life, starting with a 1980's Brother Charger 11 (which I no longer have, but have replaced with an identical machine). I have well over 60 typewriters now, with a few rare portables. Some are interesting or odd, but most of mine are common machines.

My wife and I have made a deal, that I can keep buying typewriters if she can keep buying shoes. Fair enough! *shrugs*
