The Typewriter Database 1937 Underwood Universal Serial # 1103421 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of JP Huard: 1937 Underwood Universal Serial # 1103421 This was my first typewriter. It is abnormally clean given that it was without a case when I picked it up, but it's now on it's second case.

The first case I got for it was a gift from Mark, and has been mated with another Underwood Universal of a similar vintage (a little older than this one). The second case I got for it is the case it lives in now, and was a gift from Katie.

A bit more on the case; it has a set of tripod legs built in that fold out to elevate the typewriter and have a side table. Per Robert Messenger, these are incredibly rare (he mentioned only knowing of less than a handful in existence).
