The Typewriter Database 1941 Underwood Universal Serial # F 1431615 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 1941 Underwood Universal Serial # F 1431615 A pretty rare machine, used in WW2 to transcribe radio messages onto paper. It has an all caps font, and a slashed zero to differentiate the number from a capital O.

However, if it wasn't so rare it would be a parts machine. Too many things wrong with it to list.

This particular machine came with a tripod, but as most radio mills have specially marked cases, it may not be original.

(updated)

FINALLY got around to getting it cleaned up. The carriage, it seems, needed a few adjustments so that it would sit properly. The segment was cleaned out and she types again!

Still has a ways to go, though. There is a lot of cleaning and lubrication that needs to be done and I need feet!

Sold!
