Congrads "Mech!" 

Thank you, BrianE.  I am very excited and can't wait until it arrives - hopefully this week.  I hope all the pieces are there because I would love to get it running.  I recently read a post about a beautiful Remington J and I thought to myself, "I'd love to have something like that."  From what I understand, this Century 10 is a cousin of the Remington J (Junior).

Wouldn't putting a reproduction decal on an antique lessen its value?  (They're readily available for telephones & sub-sets and it's source of ethical 'discussion' sort of like painting typewriters seems to be here at TT.)

I think it does lessen an antique's value. I personally wouldn't put paint or reproduction decals on a typewriter unless it were a very common typewriter, in terrible shape and not worth much to begin with.

I plan to clean this one very carefully and "keep it real" as much as possible.

Yes, hopefully will arrive safely.  Nice link for me to learn some of the terms & your blog & very informative & helpful.  Would go into more detail but don't want to crowd your topic. ; )
