I have just finished restoring this 1931 Remington Compact portable typewriter as part of a collection, which includes machines dating from 1900. I have recently supplied a spare part for a 1919 Corona 3 portable, which is in daily use in the US, this part was made in the US in 1919 and shipped to this country, now 100 years exactly it is going back. How many of today's electronic gagets do you think will being repaired in the year 2119? Another part is off to a NASA astronaut.
