Can you believe someone threw this out? It is a 1923 Underwood #5, their most popular model!
The keys are all there, and will a little bit of love and wd-40, they will work, I know it.
Henry spent about 1.5 hours cleaning it up and getting all the parts working. I knew they would. Now all we need is the ribbon. Anyone got one? You know, the metal spool to spool, half red half black?
I seem to remember playing on something like this in my youth. Does this typewriter look familiar to anybody? Did Grandma and Pa have one?
Hopefully, a hand typed letter will come soon. From a boy who is about to be 76 years younger than this machine. Amazing.
