1935 Underwood Universal Serial # F850790 1935 Underwood Universal typewriter, Serial # F850790 Jack B's 1935 Underwood Universal typewriter. 2014-12-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 1935 Underwood Universal Serial # F850790 Excellent! I doubt this guy was used very much during its long life, because it is in such good and clean condition. It was used into the 60's, judging by the SCM typewriter ribbons that came with it. It really shines!

I was really surprised by the shift. It is carriage shifted, but it is actually pretty light. Impressive.

The typing sample is a bit distorted because I used a bit of editing on it so the faint text could be read.

Sold for an astonishing $682.13
