Purchased on Ebay in December 2015. It had a few more mechanical issues than I was willing to address at the time, but overall a fun machine. I really like the "fish scale" gold front plate, though the beige is kind of boring. A little cleaning plus some minor repairs to the ribbon reverse mechanism and this should be back up and running.

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood Ace on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood Ace By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
