I got this typewriter earlier today!
Please take a look at this wonderful machine made in USA in the 40s. (Serial Nr: V693214).
Despite its compact look, it's sturdy and well-engineered just like a full-sized standard machine. I like the strong spring-y feels of Remington portables. The platen is still OK and so are the feed rollers. One biggest concern of Pre-50 machines is the degradation of rubber and thank god, this machine doesn't seem to have that problem. Enamal and paint remain intact. (There are some chip-offs though)
What makes this machine so special is the maths symbols. I'd imagine that its first owner is a science professor coz he/she takes good care of this writing tools.
