History of the Remington Typewriters:
When Remington Corporation figured out that its portables could type without raising the typebars to a 45-degree angle, the #3 was introduced. This is much like the #2 except that there is no rising panel or side lever. The typebars rest at an angle of only 15 degrees or so, and are surrounded by a metal lip marked "Remington" (or, rarely, "Remington 3"). This typewriter introduced the paragraph key -- a key that automatically advances the carriage five spaces (labeled "Self Starter" on some models and specimens). The machine comes in various attractive colors and color combinations, such as this blue/turquoise specimen. Its original price was $60 (~$1000 in 2020).
This Remington typewriter was hand-built at U.S. Factory in 1930's. It was a symbol of American ingenuity, intellectual superiority, state-of-the-art engineering and high-quality manufacturing. This very precise instrument was envy of the world. In these precarious times for United States, this Remington Typewriter will remind you of American Glory Days. Definitely one of the best typing machines! Great collectible that will only increase in value as the years pass!
