The wife and I agreed, no more typewriters. Then I found YET another one, and I have a real soft spot for these post-war Remington Rand portables, they are lightweight, portable, and have excellent snappy key action, with great finger feel -- it types like an absolute dream. I saw this at an auction and and my hands trembled, I broke out in a sweat, I was not supposed to bring any more typewriters home, I had promised!
"But honey! It's perfect. It's beautiful. I couldn't... I couldn't resist."
She sighed at me and made me promise, NO MORE TYPEWRITERS. (I wonder how long I can keep getting away bringing them home though?)
So after liquidating nearly all my vintage typewriter collection, this beauty made it's way into my shop for a quick clean up and needed almost nothing done other than a very light cleaning. The ribbon was dried out, but replaced with a brand new one purchased from TYPEWRITERSTUFF here on Etsy - The type samples in photo 5 are from the ribbon I installed.
This is a lovely vintage and fully functional 1948 Remington Rand De Luxe Model 5 Portable Typewriter from the "1941 Line" with a BRAND NEW RIBBON and WITHOUT the case - a rare model from the 1948 with a serial number of B1621627, this model is a continuation of the '1941 line' which was produced continuously from 1940-1953. The interior is immaculate. The ribbon was replaced with a brand new reproduction silk ribbon with red and black ink. The keys are all shiny and perfect. The exterior is in great condition with only minor markings from regular use.
The case is in rough shape and is not included, if you still want the case PM me here for a revised shipping total after purchase - the case DOES add considerable weight to the package.
Shipping weight is 11 lbs.
