1942 Underwood S Serial # S5550911-11 1942 Underwood S typewriter, Serial # S5550911-11 Erik Bruchez's 1942 Underwood S typewriter. 2018-08-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Bruchez: 1942 Underwood S Serial # S5550911-11 This machine was not expensive but it was really filthy and stinky when I found it. It turned out to be a great machine to use. It is my first elite typeface, which means that it types 12 characters per inch (instead of 10, which is more common), and it is a pleasure to use. And I think that, contrary to my first impression, and in spite of the "crinkle" paint, it looks pretty good!

I started collecting my first pre-WW2 standard typewriters in 2017. Since then I have added a few machines to my collection, which now ranges from the 1890s to the 1970s. As of April 2019, I have more big standard (desktop) typewriters than portables, and a few standard electrics.
