Gorgeous antique Underwood No. 5 typewriter in good working condition. Black steel and enamel paint, comes with black ink ribbon. Slight flaking/cracking paint on the front panel from normal use over its nearly 100-year history, but otherwise in great condition. Has been gently dusted, platen cleaned, keys rinsed with mineral spirit (no oil) to remove gunk and ensure that keys strike fine. Front margin ruler was replaced with one in better condition. (Note: the pink showing on the metal is the reflection of my jacket while taking the photo).
Wonderful historical piece one of the USA’s first typewriter manufacturers (founded 1895). The Underwood No. 5 was launched in 1900 as “the first truly modern typewriter”.
