1936 Underwood Champion

Serial #G903258

It used to say Made in Canada.

I picked up this great little typer at a Sunday market. It's a little grimy but in very good shape and it types well. I'm not clear why there's a G at the beginning of the serial, unless that's a country code (Canada) or I'm missing something.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
