195X Underwood Golden Touch Serial # 11-7985846 195X Underwood Golden Touch typewriter, Serial # 11-7985846 Brian Goode's 195X Underwood Golden Touch typewriter. 2020-07-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brian Goode: 195X Underwood Golden Touch Serial # 11-7985846 This looks to be nearly identical to the SX150,, just with different branding. I suspect that would put int in the mid to late '50s. This typer was beyond filthy when I got it - I looked as though it had been used to hold a shed door open for a long while. I got everything unfrozen and typing correctly, thou I did leave a fair amount of "patina".

Hunter: Brian Goode (vinylspin)

Brian Goode's Typewriter Galleries [ My Collection ] [ My Sightings ]

Status: Typewriter Hunter
Points: 310

I am a retro post-punk meta-hipster, bassist, raconteur, techno-archivist, humorist, optimist, bon vivant and a fan of vinyl records, early 80's Japanese hi-fi gear, photography and obsolete but useful machines of all kinds. I am the proud owner of a 1970 Hermes 3000 and a 1940's Remington Rand typing desk.

I also created a typewriter image "filter" (see my avatar). It's written in Python and generates 65-character-wide images using over 1700 actual red-and-black-ribbon'd samples from my typewriter, meaning I could actually type them out myself on an 8 1/2" wide sheet of paper with 1" margins.

My dog Koa and I live in Buckeye, AZ.
