Nick brought in this Remington Monarch Pioneer, serial number C110280, from 1937. This little bit of simplicity is in top condition.
Top condition means it is a Remington from the thirties, so it needed a new platen, paper rollers, feet and a drawcord (don’t they all!). If you had to have a super reliable machine, with the fewest parts to go wrong, I think I found your Apocalypse machine!
Seriously, all the factory connection points for such things as back space, margins, margin release and shift lock are here, just not installed. I particularly enjoy the abbreviated number row. The simplicity features are; no back space, no shift lock, no margins nor margin release, no tabs, not even a carriage return lever!
Purple ribbon takes this one over the top.
