1970’s Working Underwood 450 Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case, Keys, Instruction Manual
Working Underwood 450 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1970’s. Regardless of such old age, the Underwood 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 black and white designed 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 with keys and instruction manual.
