197X Remington 611 Serial # ??? 197X Remington 611 typewriter, Serial # ??? Richard Polt's 197X Remington 611 typewriter. 2015-06-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 197X Remington 611 Serial # ??? Unfortunately, I couldn't find any serial number on this thrift store sighting. It was very heavy and not working. Still, an interesting encounter.

This "Remington" is a Brother JP-4 type electric (see the Brother database).

I note that it has manual carriage return -- primitive for the time, and this is probably a reason why it is pretty scarce today.
