1920’s Working Underwood 3 Bank Standard Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made In USA
Working Underwood 3 bank vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1920’s. Regardless of such old age and despite being ‘obsolete’, this typewriter retains an original look and works exceptionally well. Smooth and light glass keys provide enjoyable experience while typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This rare black typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original case.
