Almost a Christmas present, because I found it on the first days of December. But a present because Underwood prices are always 3-digit long around here, no matter its condition. Finding it at 30 euros has been early Christmas for me.
After some minor adjustments which took about 30 minutes, the typewriter is alive again. At first I was a bit shocked with the ribbon spools, because they roll the other way round. In general itÂ´s in pretty good condition except for the decals, which are quite worn off.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.
A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
