1929 Remington Portable Model 3
Up for sale is a nice shiny Remington Portable Model 3 which was made in America in 1929. This typewriter is in impressive condition for its age, and is fully functional. The paper bail feed rollers have been re-covered with polymer clay, and luckily the platen and feed rollers are still in acceptable condition and were likely re-covered at some point between 1929 and now. The carrying case shows the most wear, and the original leather handle is long-gone. The case does still latch and a replacement handle can be installed with some craftiness. There is a worn sticker on the body above the keyboard from what was likely the shop that either serviced or sold this typewriter, and it looks surprisingly similar to the circular label that came standard from the factory on the previous Remington Portable models 1 and 2.
Mechanically, this typewriter is in perfect functional condition, and types rather well for being nearly 100 years old. It might not be the best choice to write heavily with, but it can definitely handle smaller writing tasks that aren't novels unless you are determined to do it on an old machine such as this one.
Universal ribbons will not fit this typewriter, so the original metal spools will need to be re-thread. The owner's manual can be downloaded for free here: https://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/Remington3.pdf
