1931 Underwood 6 Serial # 4044835-12 1931 Underwood 6 typewriter, Serial # 4044835-12 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1931 Underwood 6 typewriter. 2020-01-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1931 Underwood 6 Serial # 4044835-12 As we say in Spain, maquinas como esta crean aficion. Typewriters like this make you become a fan.

Underwoods are not uncommon, but in Spain they tend to be quite overpriced. If you want a 5 you may well expect a 3-figure price tag. 3's are quite scarce and this 6... Well, I've never seen one available / reasonable in Spain. So this beautiful machine popped up in France, and even with a healthy 3-figure price tag it came home. It's in awesome condition (not Perfect in Capitals but quite), works fine and it compels me to start typing, writing and filling pages like a maniac.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´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.
