1943 Underwood S Serial # S14-5741681 1943 Underwood S typewriter, Serial # S14-5741681 Mark Schrad's 1943 Underwood S typewriter. 2021-01-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1943 Underwood S Serial # S14-5741681 This 1943 Underwood S with 14" carriage was likely one of the last typerwriters to come off the line before Underwood switched production over to Carbines for the war effort in WWII. I got it in Havertown PA, in January 2019 from a retired teacher. And bonus points: it has a dealer tag from Newtown Square, which is indeed quite local!
