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 grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´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 is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...
Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood Universal on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood Universal By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
