1905 Underwood 4 Serial # 88488-4 1905 Underwood 4 typewriter, Serial # 88488-4 Mark Schrad's 1905 Underwood 4 typewriter. 2023-09-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1905 Underwood 4 Serial # 88488-4 This is a gorgeous (and early!) 1905 Underwood 4, from the Bob Aubert collection of Delran, NJ. According to Bob's hand-written notes, this machine he purchased from the original owner--one Mrs. Peterson of 2804 Jomat Avenue in Carney, Maryland (Baltimore suburbs) in March of 1968. Mrs. Peterson apparently got it new--with wooden base and lid--new as a present for graduating from high school back in about 1905-06 or so. Quite a life this gorgeous machine has led!
