1978 Underwood 319 Serial # 9461652 1978 Underwood 319 typewriter, Serial # 9461652 Ted Munk's 1978 Underwood 319 typewriter. 2015-12-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1978 Underwood 319 Serial # 9461652 Basically a Lettera 35 in a plastic shell with Underwood badging. I suspect the frames follow Olivetti Lettera 35 series. Pica typeface, nice feel, but too bulbous and lightweight. Slides all over the desk when typing. Main difference is the return lever, which is not the Olivetti-style folding paddle.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
