I scored this typewriter today or at least hope it is a score. Remington Noiseless Model Seven, Serial Number: H119955 Matte Finish with case. Missing R/S Ribbon Holder. Can anyone help me out with some information and value of this. Thanks a bunch.

    I think it is a late 40's because of the wrinkle finish. I believe they made about 50,000. please double ck my numbers. Does not seem like there is a market for old portables. I would "guess" it was worth about $50-$100.

    Here's something I found on the internet as I searched for information about the Remington Noiseless Model Seven which my Dad passed along to me many years ago. Hope it helps to answer your questions.
    (The following copied & pasted from internet. Note the post-war serial numbers.)

    Remington Noiseless Model Seven (Nov. 1931-March 1941)
    Serial numbers: H10000-H63756
    Number made: 53,757

    The Model Seven, the big brother of the Noiseless Portable, has a full-sized paper table, a tabulator, black plastic keytops, and a carriage return lever that is long and horizontal rather than short and vertical. My first typewriter was one of these, and I still enjoy using it. Its original price was $105, reduced to $72 by 1935. Triple line spacing was introduced with H25728 (July 1933). Some specimens have bigger feet that later ones, so they stand about 1 cm taller. Earlier machines differ from later ones in some small ways: for instance, the earlier machines have smaller, more rounded spacebars, and a simpler scale/cardholder in front of the platen. There are at least two decal schemes: the one shown above, with "Remington 7 Noiseless" on the paper table, and another scheme with "Remington Noiseless" on the paper table and "Model Seven" on the front of the machine. A rare color variant is two-tone green. (I once saw a #7 covered in alligator skin! Probably an aftermarket refinement. It was found in Las Vegas -- of course.) Name variants: Monarch, Monarch 71, Smith Premier 71. The Seven was revived after the war (1945-49), with wrinkle paint and other small stylistic changes; the postwar serial numbers, H64000-H193575, are not included in the total made as listed above.
