1914 Underwood No. 5

 

Underwood 5

This eighty-eight year old banger has somehow managed to not only retain nearly 98% of its gold decals, front and back, over the years - but even still has the factory WHITE glass top key board!

O.K. If I'm ever going to work my magic with a #5, this is the one...

Add one new platen and a set of good feed rolls along with some nice feet, new ribbon on metal spools, plus over eight hours of cleaning and polishing, etc. Bottom line - a typer that can be used daily, that is if you can take the noise for more than a few hours!

This old timer is not your every day, as-is-eBay door stop! It will still do its job if you do yours.

To make this deal a bit sweeter, I will be including with this fine old machine, one factory reference information booklet on the "Proper Use, Care and Handling of your old Banger," along with a Mr. T's "Official Wordsmith Writing Shirt."

Optional, but recommended items would include one or more sets of ear plugs and a bottle of T's favorite type cleaner.

You're not going to find a sweeter deal than this timeless classic, especially not with the soon to be classic, not available anywhere else, limited edition MrTypewriter T-shirt!

More pictures below of the typer and the t-shirts too!
