Serial #4B 161596
This is a hybrid machine. A friend asked me to repair his grandfather's typewriter that had sentimental value to his family. It had been dropped -- the bell was sheared off, several slugs were missing, etc. It was beyond repair. I ended up swapping bodies with another 4 bank I owned. I did need to swap out the ribbon holders as the later body had the Underwood logo ribbon covers. I didn't mind giving up the donor as it was missing the ribbon covers.
Original serial number: 4B 161596 (1928)

The original typewriter had elite type. The donor had pica. The type sample is from the donor body.
