1934 Underwood Noiseless 77 Serial # 653119 1934 Underwood Noiseless 77 typewriter, Serial # 653119 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1934 Underwood Noiseless 77 typewriter. 2014-07-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1934 Underwood Noiseless 77 Serial # 653119 I really didn't need to buy this Noiseless as I already had a Remington Noiseless 7, but I convinced myself that it would be interesting to make a direct comparison of the two.

Some people like to point out that these machines aren't in fact noiseless, but most will agree that they are sufficiently quiet that they won't wake the dead, something that most typewriters are more than capable of doing. I argue that the Noiseless moniker gets the point across, and besides, who would want to buy a typewriter that was named the Underwood Muffled 77?
