The Typewriter Database 1938 Underwood M Serial # M4917899-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1938 Underwood M Serial # M4917899-11 Made in the USA, or made in Canada, because it says both on this Master, which types far better than it looks. I suspect that the paper table was replaced at some point, which would make this a Canadian built Underwood.

There's something quite intriguing about this big breadbox, something that I fear might be lost if it was given a full restoration.
