It was an L.C. Smith and a Remington
My sneak peak was a fun little contest and there were a number of good guesses. JustAnotherGuy was partially right at first, the putty colored machine was a Remington Standard which, I believe, is the same as a Super-Riter. RobertG threw me for a loop guessing a Harry Smith which I guess could technically be right because Harry Smith refurbished many typewriters. Maryech got both right - L.C. Smith #5 and a Remington Super-Riter (Standard). Thanks for playing along with the comments. I will have to wait until after this Saturday's Type-In before I give these two typers more attention. The Remington has a broken drawcord but is otherwise in great shape - built like a tank! The L.C. Smith actually types and just needs a cleaning.
