This is an underestimated machine. It is a successor to the "S". I got it for pretty cheap, but it turned out gorgeous.
This is the first time I really had to fix something major: I replaced the escapement wheel from another machine (ball bearings flying around!). I also replaced all the soundproofing material inside. I even had the old material tested for asbestos, and luckily there was no trace of that.
It is a really good machine, and I love the color scheme with the white and green keys. Also note the lowercase "underwood" decals.

I started collecting my first pre-WW2 standard typewriters in 2017. Since then I have added a few machines to my collection, which now ranges from the 1890s to the 1980s. As of 2020, I have more big standard (desktop) typewriters than portables, and a few standard electrics.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood Rhythm Touch on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood Rhythm Touch By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
