1933 Underwood 6 Serial # 4183262-11 1933 Underwood 6 typewriter, Serial # 4183262-11 Justin De Mello's 1933 Underwood 6 typewriter. 2016-05-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Justin De Mello: 1933 Underwood 6 Serial # 4183262-11 Saw this at an outdoor 2-day vintage tent sale in northern Colorado while traveling. Didn't really have room in the car but had to have it. The seller did not want to haul it back home at the end of the show so I got a good deal on it. Works great but like all my typewriters, needs continued TLC ... which they all frequently get.

I fell in love with typewriters when I was 13. I'm retired now. My first was a Corona #3 which I got free from a neighbor. Decades pass, life happened, and I lost interest. Then a few years back as a retiree I renewed my interest which is a bit of a happy obsession now. However, it's not just typewriters that captivate me; I love all types of old office equipment, too. I have a Dalton adding machine (which I've restored), several different working antique check writers, a Dictaphone, antique steno machine, business card press, postage stamp scale. I have a well equipped antique office that is spilling into all parts of my home. Most items are from the Machine Age: 1880's into the 1930's. Still, typewriters are complex and amazing pieces of machinery that I'm always drawn to.
