197X Underwood Electric 565

Serial #9036260

No type sample, found at Goodwill for $15 and passed. I had never seen an Underwood electric like this, so I figured it would be beneficial to throw it up here. Took the photos with my cell phone, that is why they suck. The inside of the machine looks a little familiar to me, with those supports either side of the segment, Smith Corona maybe? It was made in Japan.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
