1955 Underwood Universal

Serial #C 2589027

Another typewriter that my father has had for years. He paid $5 for it at a garage sale.

It's a 1955 Underwood Universal (probably the 'Junior' model) that was made before the 'Quiet Tab' models came out later in 1956 (not sure on that).

Typewriter and case are in VG condition.

I'm a collector of various types of antique/vintage items (toys, farm tools, old bottles, war memorabilia, coins, stamps, etc.).

I came across 3 antique Remington portable typewriters several years back and am hoping to be able to identify their Model # and Date of manufacture, if possible.

I am planning on selling them but not without a bit more knowledge about them :)

I'm from Ontario, Canada.
