1932 Woodstock 5 Serial # N317107 1932 Woodstock 5 typewriter, Serial # N317107 Gerald Ambrose's 1932 Woodstock 5 typewriter. 2017-07-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1932 Woodstock 5 Serial # N317107 Another sighting from the antique store that I frequent.

I believe the serial number makes it a 1932 Model 5? Not 100% sure.

This was the first time I had ever seen a Woodstock 'in the wild.'

It somewhat worked. You had to hit the spacebar a certain way and sometimes helping the carriage along wouldn't hurt. Probably needed some cleaning. Also, shift was sticky to return.

Unfortunately, it was a whopping $135! This is the same seller as the 1938 Remington Portable I have posted here. Perhaps I could put a deal together for the pair of them at some point?

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
