1930 Underwood 5 #3769910-5


I picked this up off the local Craigslist. Very nice looking machine.

Typeface Specimen:

Hunter: Diane Maher (colrehogan)

Status: Typewriter Hunter
Points: 368

I decided that I wanted to find the one typewriter that I remembered my mom using to type my term papers in school. Even though we couldn't find it, I found that I enjoyed typewriters and started a small collection. It extended to rescuing the ones in my parents' basement a week before it flooded.

I enjoy making machines work and especially like to use the Smith Premier typewriters.
