1927 Underwood 5

Serial #2232177-5

Condition I got the machine in...

A good friend of mine gave me this typewriter in very rough shape and said I could do whatever I wanted with it, as it had just been pulled out of her boyfriend's grandmother's basement.

I blew some dust out and sat on it for a bit, and she eventually decided that she'd love to be able to give it back to him as a gift all cleaned up, and asked that I help her out with that. Naturally, was happy to do so. I think it cleaned up pretty nicely...

I apologize for the lack of proper typeface sample, I didn't think to do one before getting the machine back to her!
