The Typewriter Database 1949 Underwood Finger-Flite Champion Serial # J2 195797 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Melissa Favara: 1949 Underwood Finger-Flite Champion Serial # J2 195797 I've wanted this one for awhile and found on Craigslist for $20 today: it's dirty and has a little rust to deal with, but it types astonishingly easily. The type could be crisper, but it's delightful.

I started collecting typewriters in 1996 when my employer at an old newsstand in Kalamazoo, MI gave me her mother's Underwood Elliot Fisher Noiseless; I love these machines and learning how to repair and maintain them. The Noiseless was the medium for a zine I wrote through the nineties and into the oughts, and my nine-year-old daughter now types regularly.
