I like the design of this machine. The keyset reminds me of the Premier; the keys are too small for my fingers. I do like the aesthetics of the typewriter, however. The serial number resides under the right ribbon spool, and it's very difficult to read the first few numbers/letters.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Remington Monarch 2 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Remington Serial Number page and the Remington Monarch 2 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
