1921 Remington Standard No. 10
Up for sale is a really attractive Remington Standard No. 10 which was made in Ilion, NY in 1921. This typewriter is the "L" model variant of the Standard 10, and has the tabulator feature that looks like it was slightly customized for its use case back in the day. This typewriter also has a slightly smaller than standard "elite" typeface at 12 characters per inch instead of the standard 10. This typewriter is in fully functional shape down to the bell, and is quite a smooth and reliable workhorse despite being 100 years old. The paint and labels are also in remarkably great shape, although they are not perfect (which would be unreasonable anyways for a machine of this age). This typewriter does not have any notable rust, and the nickel plated parts only have very light pitting in some spots. The rubber parts are in fair shape, and although the platen does have some wear, it still feeds paper perfectly well and should last for many years to come still before a re-covering is necessary.
Universal ribbons will not fit this typewriter, so the original metal spools will need to be-rethread when the time comes for a fresh ribbon.
If you're looking for a classic desktop that can still be used heavily and reliably despite being 100 years old, then this is a great choice and will add character to any desk or table.
