1933 Underwood 6 Serial # 4172953-12 1933 Underwood 6 typewriter, Serial # 4172953-12 J Makoto Smith's 1933 Underwood 6 typewriter. 2018-06-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of J Makoto Smith: 1933 Underwood 6 Serial # 4172953-12 Got this typewriter in almost new condition, save for the keys, which are a little discoloured. Works like a charm, and puts my other Underwood standard to shame with its light, yet snappy action, and relatively light shift-action. This is truly the pinnacle of Underwood's craftsmanship.

Elite typeface, with sans-serif numerals, different from all other typestyles I've seen on Underwoods of this same era.
