1939 Underwood Ace Serial # S1286008 1939 Underwood Ace typewriter, Serial # S1286008 Gerald Ambrose's 1939 Underwood Ace typewriter. 2023-02-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1939 Underwood Ace Serial # S1286008 Found at a Flea Market.

The indexing was not quite right, as was the line space selector, but otherwise it is in incredible condition!
It works well, and the only thing I wish it had is a margin release.

It does remind me of the Remington 3B and Corona Comet and Comet De Luxe in that it was mid-range machine that was not quite the budget model nor was it at the top- of-the -line for their brand.
But still great machines!

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
