1973 Remington Ten Forty Serial # CY-68-39-47 1973 Remington Ten Forty typewriter, Serial # CY-68-39-47 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1973 Remington Ten Forty typewriter. 2014-06-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1973 Remington Ten Forty Serial # CY-68-39-47 Somewhere inside of this pile of junk is a good typewriter. Unfortunately, this machine has been put through the ringer by its previous owner(s) and suffered the worse of it. However, its type action is quite nice, which is why I'm going to hang onto it until I find the time to fix its mechanical woes.

The machine is made in Canada (the Centennial sticker on the back is quite cool for a Canadian like me), but the case of the machine was apparently made in Italy (see photo).
