1920 Underwood 5 #1426474
Found as a rusted, jammed, filthy, badly repainted hulk at a yard sale for $10. The Good Reverend ministered to his needs and he sprang back to life, ready for another 100 years of service. The paint job was badly done in about 1940 (by the apparent age of the sticker of the shop that did it), but I've given up getting that paint off. I have come around to the idea that it adds charm. It's the only standard-size typewriter I've kept around other than the Selectrics.
This typewriter's name is "Drago".
- Drago, the 1920 Underwood #5
- Drago and a nice scan of an Underwood #5 Pica Paper Scale
- Dragoâ€™s gettinâ€™ New Rubber!
Hunter: Ted Munk (munk)
I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.
I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood 5 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood 5 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
