Underwood Typewriter. This is either a No. 6 with an 11" Platen, or an Underwood Standard Champion Model of 1937.

I do love my Underwoods.

I just can't help it. They follow me home!

This is a working model and is a bit of a mystery.

It is either a Number 6 with the 11" Platen (Thus the "11" on the name plate) or a Standard Champion Model of 1937.

It does say "Underwood Standard" on the front and "Champion" on the back of the space bar.

The serial number 4546622-11 would date it to 1936 for a No. 6, and, of course, 1937 for the Champion Model of 1937.

Either way - it's cool!

I am not a typewriter expert, but I do know how to type and this appears to work great. The keys are smooth and the bell rings, although not loudly.

The keys are all in very nice shape.

Don't you dare cut them off! I know the jewelry is cool too, but . . . well if you do just don't tell me. OK? ;-)

There are signs of use and age including missing finish, and missing textured finish on the right side of the front panel. This would most likely need a good tune-up if you plan to use it regularly.

I run a wet cloth over them and that's about it. I know some like them pretty and others like them in the rough.

It's up to you how much reconditioning effort you would like to put in.

This, however, would look great on display as-is.

Got a specific question? Send me a convo. I love convos. And Underwood typewriters!!
