19XX Remington Streamliner Serial # NX345803 19XX Remington Streamliner typewriter, Serial # NX345803 James Gifford's 19XX Remington Streamliner typewriter. 2017-06-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 19XX Remington Streamliner Serial # NX345803 Picked this up at a yard sale when the sun was barely up. I paid more than I wanted at $40, but the seller had a good story. His father and uncle had worked for Underwood for many years and he has a vast collection on another site. His collection is made up entirely of SCM, Remington, and Underwoods, mostly modern portables and a slew of Underwood No 5s. I planned on establishing a relationship, but I don't think he's going to sell any others. Regardless, this is a nice typer for the price and looks good. It's not one of the better typewriters in my collection, but it will look great on the shelf. Also, I find it interesting that the typewriter was manufactured in Holland but the cover was made in Italy.

Hunter: James Gifford (giffer)

James Gifford's Typewriter Galleries [ My Collection ] [ My Sightings ]

Status: Typewriter Hunter
Points: 2325

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.
