Help identify this Remington Rand typewriter model

Does anyone have any information on this old Remington Noiseless typewriter? Pictures inside.

My coworker brought this into work this morning - a lucky find at the electronics (hah!) dropoff at the dump.

We're enamored with it, but we're not really finding much about it. Aside from the obvious Remington Rand Noiseless branding, there's not much in the way of identifying information (Pictures)

I did a few searches online, and my best guess is that it's a Model 10 from the 40s or 50s. I can't seem to locate any manuals or service guides for related models either.

Can anyone date this? Are there any resources online for cleaning and maintaining this?

Best answer: No serial number anywhere? Under the ribbon cover? On the bottom?

Best answer: Have you tried the typewriter database?

Response by poster: mr_roboto: I took a second look - there is a serial underneath the top cover (under a layer of grime). CX 54798.

Which, according to the typewriter database, is a 1940. "Noiseless Canadian Manufacture"

Brent: I'll forward that link on to my coworker and dig into it myself as well. Looks like a ton of good information there.

I should mention that we had removed the feed rollers before those photos were taken. The smaller ones are badly flattened, and I guess we need to devise a replacement.

Hey, there was just an ad for the Remington Noiseless in the LiveJournal Vintage Ad community recently. It sure made me wonder exactly how noiseless that thing was.
