As I have learned through experience, these Underwoods are indestructible.
This one may not be operative right now (you can see the broken drawband in one of the photos), but I hope it will be. ItÂ´s a bit rusty, but it only needs time to be back into action. And I hope my uncle will dedicate some of his free time to this beautiful machine. I have secured this machine for him, and itÂ´s now on the way to its new home where it will be well appreciated and looked after.
And I still owe him one more typewriter, but heÂ´s asked for a Corona 3... Why? WHY?! THEYÂ´RE EXPENSIVE!!!
--- UPDATE ---
Finally, this beast has gone to its new home and my uncle is enjoying it. I hope he finally decides to have it repaired because this excellent typewriter deserves more than being simply decorative
--- ANOTHER UPDATE ---
Refiled it (now correctly) as a 1921 Underwood 3. Big thanks to GinÃ©s Rojas for his help!

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.
A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood 3 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood 3 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
