Another first ... this typewriter was the first time I ever purchased from Craigslist. I don't know why it was scary but just the thought of meeting someone in a parking lot was weird. I took a friend, Blaine, with me .. of course all went well. This 'police car' set stinky and dirty for almost four years. It took a lot of scrubbing and polishing to get it to this shape today. Like every 1950s Underwood, it types ok with the right touch and rhythm.

I collect late 1930's-early 1940's memorabilia. I have a small collection of radios from this era that I recently had refurbished. My interest in typewriters focused around a Royal KHM typewriter that was given to me. I decided in early 2016 to get it repaired, but the typewriter repairman I visited claimed it should be trashed and couldn't be fixed. The KHM sat on my garage bench .. again gathering dust .. I couldn't toss it.
In April 2016, on a whim, I closed an eBay BUY IT NOW (and overpaid a lot!) typewriter. The 1947 Smith-Corona Silent may have cost me dearly but it started a hobby that has become a passion to learn all I can about these amazing machines. Within 4 years I have collected nearly 160 machines and am slowly learning how to repair, be patient, and be logical! :) I hope to share my collection with the world very soon!
