I do love this font! Languishing on the shelves of our local thrift store is a Studio 44 with this typeface, and we're thisclose to getting it and ditching our own unremarkable elite Studio 44. Even without the carbon ribbon, it is a joy to read and just draws you into the text.I notice you did not include an ABC in your beauty pageant of reiseschreibmaschinen :) The Noiseless is very handsome and seems like a great choice.
Maybe it is the love I have for Diesel engines that makes me also love my SG1. I think your on to something there Richard ;)
Just out of curiosity, why is the Remington quieter than the others? Does it have a special mechanical feature to cut down on noise?
Yes, it does. Here's an explanation with diagrams.
