1947 Underwood Universal Serial # F1688497 1947 Underwood Universal typewriter, Serial # F1688497 Jacob Gilliam's 1947 Underwood Universal typewriter. 2018-09-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jacob Gilliam: 1947 Underwood Universal Serial # F1688497 Once again, I spent more money on something pretty that'll take a lot of work to get up to speed, but this guy also has a happy typing feel to it. It's missing its right platen knob, as well as both front feet. It did come with its case, but it jiggles around a bit. Look at those speckles! (oops)

I am a student, father, and metrologist (gauges, not weather), Dungeon Master and typewriter tinkerer extraordinaire! I've only been at collecting and fixing since August 2018, but I already am a more confident person. I have learned a great deal from many of the wonderful resources available on the Internet, and I've met a lot of awesome people in my travels! Hopefully some folks can say the same about me!
