Found as a rusted, jammed, filthy, badly repainted hulk at a yard sale for $10. The Good Reverend ministered to his needs and he sprang back to life, ready for another 100 years of service. The paint job was badly done in about 1940 (by the apparent age of the sticker of the shop that did it), but I've given up getting that paint off. I have come around to the idea that it adds charm. It's the only standard-size typewriter I've kept around other than the Selectrics.
This typewriter's name is "Drago".

Hunter: Ted Munk (munk)
I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.
I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood 5 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood 5 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
