1960’s Working Underwood (Olivetti) 18 – New Ribbon, Stylish Case – Made in Italy
Working Underwood 18 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1960’s. Regardless of such old age, the machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, 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 Italian made typewriter is fitted with a new ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is good! The keys type well and the Underwood functions as intended. Please note that one of the paper supports is broken. Other minor signs of use and age are present.
