The Typewriter Database 1925 Underwood 5 Serial # 2014342-5 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Mitchell: 1925 Underwood 5 Serial # 2014342-5 Found this at an antique shop locally. The shift key doesn't work quite right, hence the mistake on the typeface sample, but it's something I can get fixed in the near future.

I noticed that it has an "L with stroke" key and an extra apostrophe/comma, which seem to be replacing the cents/@ key and the 1/2 and 1/4 key. Not sure if this was common, or why they'd be replaced, but it's an interesting quirk.

A writer and beginner collector/restorer of typewriters. I'd always written a few pages a day, been sort of a habit for a number of years now, and I saw a few typewriters in movies and loved the sound they made, so I decided to buy one to see what it was like.

Ended up with a Olivetti Lettera 22, and after writing about a hundred pages with it, I was hooked.
