1923 Underwood Portable 3 Bank Serial # 92315 1923 Underwood Portable 3 Bank typewriter, Serial # 92315 Grayson Harding's 1923 Underwood Portable 3 Bank typewriter. 2023-11-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Grayson Harding: 1923 Underwood Portable 3 Bank Serial # 92315 Found it in my great grandma's farm house after she died. It mostly works fine. The margin bell currently isn’t working. The box has been damaged and attempted to be repaired. The line space setter is a bit dis functional, as the single space doesn’t space at all and the double space either double spaces or single spaces. I don't know if this is all there is to it, as I have never seen one in mint condition.

The cover for the box. It seems to have been damaged at one point in time. If anyone knows if I could buy a latch for this, I could get the box working.

Some missing pieces of the margin bell mechanism I found in a rolled up piece of tape under the typewriter. I am still currently missing a tiny bit to stop the trapezoid from moving too far, so if anyone knows where I can find that, I would finally be able to get the bell working!
