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.
Oct 2017 UPDATE - sold at Herman's gathering

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.
