Working 1948 Underwood Champion Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in USA
If only typewriters could talk…
This Underwood Champion typewriter made its journey from New York, USA, on the cruise ship Queen Elizabeth, arriving with its owner on 22nd October 1948 – according to the information on the label of the case.
As the typewriter was designed for countries which used dollars as currency, this particular Underwood Champion was modified for use in the UK by changing the metal arm linked to the hashtag and 3 key. So, the hashtag is used to type pounds sterling.
This machine has had a full service by us at London Typewriters and works well.
The keys produce a soft sound when typing and the whole process of using the Underwood Champion is satisfying.
The original case with its sturdy handle is well-preserved considering its age.
The typewriter is ready to be used straight away upon arrival as a new black ribbon has been installed.
Overall condition is good. Minor signs of age and use are present – please refer to photos.
Make your own unforgettable journey with the Underwood Champion typewriter!
