1947 Remington Noiseless Model Seven
Up for sale is a Remington Noiseless Model Seven which was manufactured in 1947. This typewriter is a beautiful machine in excellent condition all around. Cosmetically, aside from some very light evidence of wear on the front frame by the spacebar, this typewriter is in near mint shape. The only major notable things are that the left-hand ribbon cover is missing, as well as part of the paper finger on the left side (see photos). The part of the paper finger that remains still does its job in supporting the paper, so nothing is really functionally lost. Mechanically, this typewriter operates nicely, and is fully functional right down to the bell. It can definitely be used heavily, but this would not be my first choice for something like writing a novel- although it could certainly be done on this machine! Keep in mind that this is a “noiseless machine,” and although not completely noiseless as it was originally advertised, it does sound very much different than normal typewriters. A demonstration for this model (not this exact typewriter, but the same machine otherwise) can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5j-j1j5i7w
The case is a bit worn, but it’s still in decent shape and does its job perfectly as it should.
The owner's manual is shared with other models from the era, which can be found here: https://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/RemPort1940.pdf
Universal ribbons fit in this typewriter, however the "core" of the spools must be punched out or otherwise removed to allow the spools to fit in Remington portables such as this one.
Overall, if you’re in the market for a beautiful noiseless machine from the ‘40s that’s in near mint condition aside from the couple small missing parts and is ready to be used frequently, then this is a great machine.
