1938 Underwood Champion Serial # 1203601 1938 Underwood Champion typewriter, Serial # 1203601 Mark Petersen's 1938 Underwood Champion typewriter. 2015-03-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1938 Underwood Champion Serial # 1203601 Purchased for a solid $50 in Daleville, VA via craigslist, this machine is super practical and a looker to boot. I have never been impressed with Underwood mechanics, but this machine is in excellent shape and in spite of a firm touch is not so bad to write with. Because of the awesome case this machine will surely see much use. And it might be one of the most attractive machines I own. (Tripod Case)
