1922 Underwood Portable 3 Bank #44978


Pica type

Not much standard about it.

I got this beat up 3-bank inexpensively, though it wasn't reliable so I sold it for repairs. I've been looking for an affordable one in better shape.

I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
