1933 Underwood 6

Serial #4183144-10

The offending double comma. Is this a common defect and is it possible to replace the duplicitous laggard?

"Deep Six"

Pretty good shape: functions out of the box with just a few sticky keys that work now that I've typed a bit. Carriage sometimes stops advancing but that also seems to be improving.

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.

Think this makes it an Underwood 10 manufactured in 1933.
