1952 Underwood SX Serial # 11-7256245 1952 Underwood SX typewriter, Serial # 11-7256245 Clark Hinson's 1952 Underwood SX typewriter. 2015-11-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Clark Hinson: 1952 Underwood SX Serial # 11-7256245 This is a machine I refurbished. I was surprised that once the covers were removed it had so many similarities to much older Underwoods. There was a decal on the inside of the left side plate showing it had been serviced in Leavenworth Kansas in 1967.

This is a very sturdy, business-like machine. The spacing is Pica (10 cpi). The type sample is with a dry ribbon.

I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
