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).

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Remington Ten Forty on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Remington Serial Number page and the Remington Ten Forty By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
