Here we are talking one foxy 1913 Underwood #5
in mint condition.
As a ninety-year old banger goes, this typer is
a one of a kind. Through no fault of the typer - I have added
new rubber, key board, ribbon, feet, etc. My thinking also is

this writer in or about 1930. The print is just too nice for
a banger this close to the century mark.
Now MrT understands that many Underwood #5 fans
have little or no interest in a working model, much less one
in mint condition - so $550.00 may be a bit out of their ball
However for the rest of us.... they ain't making
Now you better act fast because my thinking
is that soon after my webmaster - Wilson, or as I affectionately
refer to him as - "Fast Eddie", posts this old timer
- it will soon have a new home.
