Mid Century Typewriter. Remington Rand Quiet-Riter with Miracle Tab.

Industrial grey metal body with dark green keys. Vintage 1953 portable typewriter, easy to carry around for informal alfresco writing sessions.

This little baby is working pretty well. All keys are present and working fine, although the return movement is sluggish. Needs a good clean and refurbish job. The ribbon still prints, but very lightly. The roller bar and tabs are very responsive and work great. The grey metal housing has a couple of smudges on the top.

The typewriter lives inside a hard case and securely latches in for carrying. You can unhook the case lid and use the typewriter still latched to the base, or you can remove it completely from the case to stand on it's own. All the latches work well, the case is strong and functional but the outside fabric has been spotted and stained with what looks like dirt splatters and some white paint drops. I'm guessing this typewriter has been taken on a road trip a time or two and used outside. The inside lining of green felt is faded, with some scuffs and light staining. The key to the case is long gone.
