Remington Quiet-Riter Typewriter

This Quiet-Riter Eleven model portable typewriter was manufactured by the Remington Rand Corporation during the 1950s. The portable typewriter has all the features of a full sized model including an 88 character standard keyboard, a miracle tab that set and cleared stops making indenting easier, a cylinder that allowed you to type closer towards the bottom of the frame, and a shock resistant Cycolac frame. The typewriter came in a hard case for easier portability.
