The Underwood Noiseless Portable, a rebranded version of the Remington Noiseless Portable, was an popular model of portable typewriter through the 1930s. The Noiseless Portable and extremely similar Underwood Noiseless 77 (a rebranded Remington 7 Noiseless) were manufactured in the Remington factory, as part of a patent exchange and licensing agreement between Underwood and Remington.

The Noiseless Portable was also available in green and maroon, though black is by far the most common variant.
