1937 Remington Noiseless Portable
Up for sale is a beautiful Remington Noiseless Portable which was manufactured in the heart of the Great Depression in 1937. This typewriter is stunning condition, and is fully functional right down to the bell. The glossy black paint on this machine has few to no scratches or flaws, and shines impressively like a mirror. Even the labels are still crisp and gold, which is uncommon for a machine this old. The rubber feet on this machine are somewhat worn, and could probably be replaced anytime in the future, but it's not a necessity at this point. The rest of the rubber on this machine (platen and feed rollers) are in great shape and feed paper very well. The case is in decent shape, but has some wear which is to be expected for a original case this old.
Despite its name, the Remington Noiseless is not completely noiseless, however it is significantly quieter by design. You can get an idea of what this model sounds like here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wzp4OAjAtag
This typewriter is relatively easy to use and for, and even accepts the universal ribbons that are sold on this site, once you take out the removable core in each spool. The owner's manual can be found for free here: https://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/RemingtonNoiselessPortable.pdf
It's important to remember to return the carriage return lever to the storage position (down) to be put in the case, or else, if left in the typing position (up) when the case is closed, it will break, as it did with the previous owner. The lever was soldered back into place and is fully functional and secure, however it could easily happen again if you forget to properly care for it.
I would not recommend this typewriter for extremely heavily writing- such as a novel. However, it is a functional and smooth typer to write with, and can be used very frequently and reliably.
If you're looking for a beautiful depression-era classic that can still be used, then this is a great option.
