Machine has FMK and 211 cast underneath. The build quality is good and there is an oil reservoir that will oil points just by pushing a gold button on the top of the arm.

In the late 1950’s there were more than 300 Japanese companies involved in the industry, with 125 manufacturing sewing machines. By the end of 1969 only 25 companies were actively manufacturing machines, and accessory suppliers had likewise decreased to a handful. Yet despite the trend, production and export from Japan increased dramatically.

It is not thought that this machine has any connection with the earlier Remington Sewing Machine Company in the US.
