I have admired typewriters since I found my fairly recently acquired 1923 Underwood No. 5 from a local antique store in my hometown of Mount Vernon, Ohio. To me, typewriters are a window to the soul, allowing the user to creatively express themselves and to get to know more about themselves through poems, art, newsletters, or whatever the typer chooses to craft and create. I am always on the hunt and keep my eyes peeled for new finds wherever and whenever they come my way.



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.
