1957 Underwood Ace Serial # DC2884923 1957 Underwood Ace typewriter, Serial # DC2884923 tom hitt's 1957 Underwood Ace typewriter. 2017-11-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of tom hitt: 1957 Underwood Ace Serial # DC2884923 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.
