197x Remington Ten Forty Serial # TY50 2425 197x Remington Ten Forty typewriter, Serial # TY50 2425 Michael Hoehne's 197x Remington Ten Forty typewriter. 2019-12-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 197x Remington Ten Forty Serial # TY50 2425 This is a Royal Caravan but not the one you are thinking of. This is a smaller, lighter Caravan than the more common ones that are similar to the Safaris and Sabres. Why two different typewriters with the same model name? Who Knows? At least with the Safari and the Sahara (which is like this Caravan), they marked the difference....

This has a plastic body on a nice cast aluminum frame.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.



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.
