197X Remington Ten Forty Serial # HY684632 197X Remington Ten Forty typewriter, Serial # HY684632 Darren Goossens's 197X Remington Ten Forty typewriter. 2019-08-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Darren Goossens: 197X Remington Ten Forty Serial # HY684632 The back panel says made in Holland, the case is made in Western Germany, and inside the plastic body it says made in Italy. so I guess the mechanism is from Holland, the body from Italy and the case from Germany. A true pan-European machine. Cannot give year because the database does not allow Ten Forty serial numbers to begin with HY. I would guess 1973. A$5 (about US$3.40.)
