Going to let this one go.
Probably a very rare finish. It is still the only Remington Portable #2 typewriter I've seen with this crackle red finish. Spotted a few images of green crackle Portables online, but no red machines.
Even though it works well and has a spectacular finish, the 'Lava' machine will be let go of. Of all the machines to use and tinker with, this one gets picked least often. So decided to let this one go.
This time it comes with the instruction booklet. This should prevent a next owner forcing the lid down over the carriage with the knob extended.
Paring down... ...well, probably more a case of making space for possible new specimens to tinker with and fix-up.
Lava, still a very striking machine :)
