1947 Underwood Noiseless Standard Serial # 5916335 1947 Underwood Noiseless Standard typewriter, Serial # 5916335 J Makoto Smith's 1947 Underwood Noiseless Standard typewriter. 2018-10-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of J Makoto Smith: 1947 Underwood Noiseless Standard Serial # 5916335 This Underwood Noiseless was my first solo typewriter repairwork. I had to get the Tabulator to activate the carriage release, get the centre tie & and pressure gauge(?) to work once more, put the type on feet, as well as stop skipping. I even cleaned and repainted the machine, and found lovely blue pinstripes on the sides. Later on, I changed out the keytops with a noisy Remington 17 that skips like the dickens. It looks great, and goes rather well with my Remington Noiseless DeLuxe Portable.
it has a cover, but I rarely use it.
