Bought some neat film cases from JapanCameraHunter; wrapped in newspapers. The characters are unreadable; but I know a typewriter when I see one. Was going to say it could be a Royal KMG , but I have learned my lesson!
UM, on reflection, this typewriter looks sort of like a Royal KMG, don’t you agree?
From the NY TIMES: Very nice pic of Arthur Miller and his faithful word-printing machine which I think is an Olympia SM 3 (?) Wonder if Marilyn M. ever clacked out some notes on it?
… Of Once Upon a Time … woman confronts hunky guy about the mysterious box he totes around on the back of his motorcycle. He shows her —
“I’m a… Writer…” He adds, a bit pretentiously; oh, that clears up everything — not really…of course the logo has been removed — any ideas on the make and model? (confirmed as a REMINGTON ALL-NEW, ca. 1949 — Thanks Piotr & Don! — and of course, thanks to http://www.typewriterdatabase.com ) Wonder how the ad copy kids handled that model name, though? “Introducing the New, Remington All-New… it’s all new for you…” Um… Then they could bring back the Remington CLASSIC, like Coke did in that major marketing stumble.
It’s that gifty time of year when you have to remind friends and family — yes I do dig complete typewriters–hacked-off pieces of them, made into bracelets and cufflinks– not so much! “I know you love animals, so how about a chopped-off rabbit’s foot?”– is a good conversation-starter, ha!
