The Typewriter Database 1930 Underwood Portable 4 Bank Serial # 508186 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of David Brechbiel: 1930 Underwood Portable 4 Bank Serial # 508186 Sometimes you run across the kindest eBay seller. Carol was one of those ... for a reason unknown, she was selling a few typewriters she had collected over the years. I was fortunate to see her 'Buy It Now'/'Make An Offer' Underwood 4 Bank Faux Wood Grain Typewriter.

This Underwood was a stunner and in perfect shape. We messages back and forth several times over her love of typewriters and had a few more to sell.

Another typosphere friend picked up an early Royal Speed King in the maroon color that sounded wonderful.

In close, here is to those special eBay sellers the ones who want their typewriters in the hands of those who care.

Now for this wonderful 4-Bank!

I collect late 1930's-early 1940's memorabilia. I have a small collection of radios from this era that I recently had refurbished. My interest in typewriters focused around a Royal KHM typewriter that was given to me. I decided in early 2016 to get it repaired, but the typewriter repairman I visited claimed it should be trashed and couldn't be fixed. The KHM sat on my garage bench .. again gathering dust .. I couldn't toss it.

In April 2016, on a whim, I closed an eBay BUY IT NOW (and overpaid a lot!) typewriter. The 1947 Smith-Corona Silent may have cost me dearly but it started a hobby that has become a passion to learn all I can about these amazing machines. Within 18 months I have collected nearly 45 machines and am slowly learning how to repair, be patient, and be logical! :) I hope to share my collection with the world very soon!
