1972 Underwood 450 Serial # 1858774 1972 Underwood 450 typewriter, Serial # 1858774 Gerald Ambrose's 1972 Underwood 450 typewriter. 2018-02-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1972 Underwood 450 Serial # 1858774 After using the Montgomery Ward Escort 66 quite a bit, I decided to go after another Olivetti design machine. I was going to look for a Studio 44, but after seeing the Underwood 450, I bought one. The reason was I was not always going to use the Script typeface of the Montgomery Ward.
This machine has pica.

It needs a little cleaning, but works well.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
