Hello, here is a collectible typewriter, it is a rare model
it is in the late nineteenth century, it is in good condition, I am not a specialist but everything seems to work, there are lack of painting in places, it will be revised or restored?
it is a very big model and very heavy!
This Remington Standard Model Number 7 typewriter was manufactured by the Remington Standard Typewriter Company around 1897. The Model Number 7contained many improvements to Remington’s previous models including an improved cylinder, improved spacing mechanism, improved paper carriage, and adjustable paper guides. Many of these improvements were due to the inventiveness of Remington mechanist George B. Webb.
The first commercially successful typewriter was designed by Christopher Sholes and Carlos Glidden and manufactured by gunmakers E. Remington and Sons in 1874 in Ilion, New York. The typewriters manufactured by E. Remington and Sons had been sold by the company Wyckoff, Seamans & Benedict since 1882. In 1886 E. The Remington No. 7 above certainly fits the bill. The maze of features, four-bank keyboard, and modern feature-set must have seemed very formidable when new and shiny. Alan Sever’s No. 7 looks the part of a complicated modern typewriter. A preponderance of levers and knobs make early Remingtons look positively byzantine. I have always enjoyed the fact that the key levers-- to which the keytops are attached-- are not metal, but wood. Yes, lumber. It's the Morgan of typewriters.
