1935 Underwood Standard Champion Serial # 4431303-14 1935 Underwood Standard Champion typewriter, Serial # 4431303-14 J Makoto Smith's 1935 Underwood Standard Champion typewriter. 2018-08-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of J Makoto Smith: 1935 Underwood Standard Champion Serial # 4431303-14 I have cleaned this out, there was so much grime and crud everywhere! The bell rings again, and the typewriter looks as it did in 1935. It in one of the best in writing, rivalled only by my other standards (they all write so well), but this has the classic look and feel, creating the best typewriter experience.

This typewriter, though similar to the N° 6, is not the N° 6. This is the Standard Champion Model, a model for which virtually no information exists, the only reason I know is through some careful research into the N° 6 Model, as well as how the typewriter looks. The paper table decal on a N° 6 of this same type would be "6 Underwood 14" where this is "14 Underwood 14." There is also the word "CHAMPION" just out of sight on the space-bar, not to mention the curved Bakelite keys, rather than just glass. These features are really the only way to tell out a N° 6 from a Standard Champion.
