Vintage 1948 Remington Rand De Luxe Model 5 (1941 line) Portable Typewriter with BRAND NEW RIBBON - Rare Post-War Model


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.

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 and ribbon replacement. A new ribbon has been installed. The type samples in photo 5 are from the ribbon I installed.
