1938 Underwood Portable 4 Bank Serial # E1164709 1938 Underwood Portable 4 Bank typewriter, Serial # E1164709 Ryan August's 1938 Underwood Portable 4 Bank typewriter. 2018-07-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ryan August: 1938 Underwood Portable 4 Bank Serial # E1164709 Trying to figure out the exact type/name of this Underwood, as the labeling is sparse. Falls into the 4-bank designation via the serial number and such, though... I dunno, just could use some specifics if anyone knows. Types loudly but wonderfully- much better than it should. Seems to be missing a piece or two in the tab department (is there a bell? Can it only double space?), need to clean it someday, and I think the ink is in backwards.

As a writer, I'm always looking for new ways to explore the craft, and now my addiction to old typewriters and finding ways to actually use them has greatly inspired me



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood Portable 4 Bank on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood Portable 4 Bank By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
