1930 Underwood Portable 4 Bank Serial # 536035 1930 Underwood Portable 4 Bank typewriter, Serial # 536035 tom hitt's 1930 Underwood Portable 4 Bank typewriter. 2017-11-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of tom hitt: 1930 Underwood Portable 4 Bank Serial # 536035 Donated to my collection. The case is missing the handle, but the latch clearly shows "U.T.Co". It appears this typewriter was used for pharmacy work, with specific characters for that purpose (follow the link below for photos at my blog). Needs several repairs. I'm guessing when it was retired, the owner let the kids bang on it.

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.
