1930s Remington Rand Model 1
Up for sale is an absolutely beautiful Remington Rand Model 1 which was made sometime in the 1930s. This model is very similar to a Noiseless, and is very close in design, but it was not made to be "noiseless." More information on this specific model can be found on Richard Polt's Remington Portables website, however I grabbed a snapshot from his site regarding this model (see the second picture). Overall, this typewriter is in great shape, and it is fully functional. There is some areas with light surface rust, however it is not effecting anything, and it is mostly out of view. The paint is in great shape overall and shines very nicely, however there are a few chips. The labels are in great condition and are not faded or worn very much at all. Keep in mind with this model that the ribbon needs to be thread directly into the built-in spools. It makes finding the right ribbon easy, because the spools don't matter (the ribbon just needs to be the common standard 1/2 inch) but installation can be slightly tricky if you aren't familiar with how to re-thread a typewriter ribbon. Overall, this typewriter is extremely gorgeous and can be used frequently.
