The Typewriter Database 196X Underwood Touchmaster Five Serial # 11-9489303 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Linda Au: 196X Underwood Touchmaster Five Serial # 11-9489303 Bought this gargantuan desktop Underwood Touchmaster 5 on eBay -- another lucky try with shipping. Arrived in perfect condition.

I bought this because it is the exact make and model of typewriter we used in my 9th grade typing class (which was around 1975). It's fun to get those same tactile memories from my teen years back when I use this big bad boy.

I'm happy to own 11 typewriters currently. Two are models from my childhood: a Royal Signet portable (my first typewriter when I was about 10), and an Underwood TM-5 (used in 9th grade typing class circa 1975).

I use my IBM Selectric II to win NaNoWriMo every year now and LOVE it. The older models (including a 1954 Skyriter, a 1920s Underwood, and a Royal KMM) are currently being used to type letters to new penpals who are all interested in reviving snail-mail letter writing.
