1955 Underwood Jewell Serial # EA2625560 1955 Underwood Jewell typewriter, Serial # EA2625560 Michael Hoehne's 1955 Underwood Jewell typewriter. 2014-08-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1955 Underwood Jewell Serial # EA2625560 Well, I finally got one of these little charmers and I'm glad to learn that it is a pretty good typer and a solid machine. Was afraid it would be a little tinny, like some later Underwoods I have seen. Not so. And the lines are just as silly-sweet as they look in pictures. While the green crinkle paint isn't quite so elegant as the glossy chocolate-butterscotch, the black & white, or the turquoise-cream variants, I am happy to have this Jewell.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
