1922 Underwood Portable 3 Bank

Serial #45179

Antique mall purchase. German keyboard caught my eye. The "Y" key position replaced with a "Z" key. Different shift key mechanism than later 1922 machines--vertical bars attached to the shift lever keys. Out of alignment and some keys don't make imprint. No longer own this machine.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
