This rare Remington Rand 5 typewriter with color-coded glass keys is beautifully designed with smooth streamlined curves. Made and marketed in 1937 as a beginner's typewriter, the colored keys help to teach the typist where each finger should be placed.

Bright colored tan metal body with red, yellow, turquoise, and pale mint green keys. Comes with a brand new black and red ribbon installed! All keys work perfectly, the paper feeds smoothly, and the carriage advances smoothly.

The paint definitely shows age, as it is discolored and faded in a few areas. There are also several scratches on the body of the machine (please be sure to look at the pictures).

Fully serviced with a brand new ribbon. Comes in original case.
