1927 Underwood Portable 4 Bank Serial # 4B136906 1927 Underwood Portable 4 Bank typewriter, Serial # 4B136906 Mark Schrad's 1927 Underwood Portable 4 Bank typewriter. 2021-01-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1927 Underwood Portable 4 Bank Serial # 4B136906 I bought this 1927 Underwood 4-bank portable from a construction worker in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, in November of 2020. I originally thought it was the standard black, but it turned out to be a nice royal blue. In fixing it up, I added a coat of satin varnish to prevent the already-flaking paint from flaking off more, which gives it a unique (and I'd add, rather pleasing) appearance.
