Up for SALE is a. First year of production on FAY-SHOLES typewriters. Remington-Sholes Company , Chicago , USA. Two sons with famous family names were responsible for this monumental typewriter that originally appeared on the market in 1896 as the Remington-Sholes. Indeed, the inventor was Zalman Sholes, son of Christopher Latham Sholes, and the manager was Franklin Remington, son of Remington & Sons, who built the first Sholes & Glidden typewriters. In 1901 Sholes and Remington were forced to change the name of their company to Fay-Sholes. I’m not certain of the year OR of the particular model of this typewriter. However, the FAY-SHOLES name makes if post 1901 (when the company name became Fay Sholes). The keys all move, but with no ribbon I could not test this. I certainly don’t claim to be a TYPEWRITER expert. Therefore, anyone with more info please feel free to chime in. Please feel free to submit offers! Counts Brothers Music Inc.
