Typewriter spotting

Does any one knows this typewriter's model or brand?

  1. I believe that I've seen these keys and the front design on Remington Travellers - so the Inscription would make it a Remington Standard.

  2. That is a nice looking office typewriter. I wonder why the G key is stuck.

    1. Most probably the typewriter doesn't even works and it's just a prop for the shooting...

    1. Sí, parece ser una Remington. Confieso que nunca había visto este modelo antes.

  4. En efecto, es una Remington Standard de inicios de los años 1960s, convenientemente disfrazada para la televisión o el cine (falta el logotipo "Remington" que habría estado remachado al frente de la máquina). Encontré en Flickr una foto de ese mismo modelo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/53229621@N02/5886869306/

  5. People beat me to the brand name, so I'll just ask: did men really have such big hair circa 1963?

    1. From what I remember (although I have not lived in that time) the hair was shorter and used with some grease, at least in this part of the world. But it's a photo shoot... It is normal they change a bit the look making it more actual - perhaps a modern retro.
      One of the reasons why I was interested in knowing the machine's model was to find the year of production. After all, it wouldn't be the first time I'd see a recreation of the early 60's where appeared objects that were only invented in the mid 70's...

  6. It is a Remington GJ model, came out in the late 60's I would need to get a serial number to narrow it down but I realize it is just a photo shoot.

  7. Hello, In Mechanical typewriters page 49 with a color picture, It is a Remington Standard (Model 19). The machine in your picture is missing the buttons on the right and left side levers of the machine. The left side is "Touch Control" and the right "Ribbon Color Selector". The International GJ is Model 20 made entirely in the U.K., Century of the Typewriter page 153 and NOT the machine in your picture. You can see part of my typewriter collection at.
