197X Underwood Electric 565 Serial # 9036260 197X Underwood Electric 565 typewriter, Serial # 9036260 Mark Petersen's 197X Underwood Electric 565 typewriter. 2015-11-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 197X Underwood Electric 565 Serial # 9036260 No type sample, found at Goodwill for $15 and passed. I had never seen an Underwood electric like this, so I figured it would be beneficial to throw it up here. Took the photos with my cell phone, that is why they suck. The inside of the machine looks a little familiar to me, with those supports either side of the segment, Smith Corona maybe? It was made in Japan.
