1912 Underwood 5 Serial # 476970 1912 Underwood 5 typewriter, Serial # 476970 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1912 Underwood 5 typewriter. 2018-06-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1912 Underwood 5 Serial # 476970 If there is one machine that a collection should never be without, an early Underwood would be it. They are to this day one of the best standard typewriters and few are quite so iconic.

This one somehow survived being rebuild or repainted or being cut up out of perhaps some stroke of luck and was instead locked away in someone's garage for who knows how long. A 1974 dime was found lost inside it. Beside from some cleaning and adjustment this one works every bit as well as it did a 107 years ago.
