1912 Underwood 3 Serial # 75023 1912 Underwood 3 typewriter, Serial # 75023 Milan Berta's 1912 Underwood 3 typewriter. 2021-03-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Milan Berta: 1912 Underwood 3 Serial # 75023 I was fascinated by this typewriter at first sight, even though no one noticed him for several weeks. Thanks to Richard Polt for helping me identify him. The original Underwood 3 typewriter (made in 1912) was probably repainted (in the 1950s?). And whoever painted it (an office machine dealer?), put on a decal from an unrelated machine. In this case the decal NATIONAL is trademark owned by THE NATIONAL CASH REGISTER COMPANY.
Interesting coloured, fully functional, Czech keyboard.

Historical typewriters, cameras, sewing machines, ... - all beautiful things, that work only on the basis of human skill and ability. Therefore, they deserve our attention and respect. I do not want to let those inventions that pushed us forward much faster than we were prepared, them disappear in this way.

Lives in Michalovce, Slovakia. Proud father of two children. Started collecting in March 2020. More a hunter than a collector or restorer. But determined to change it and bring the machines to a new life. Thank you in advance for any of your advice and help. (English is not my strong side, so I use Uncle Google's help. Correct me anytime).
