WWII US NAVY UNDERWOOD TYPEWRITER


Recommended Posts

Picked this up this WWII USN Underwood portable Typewriter.  

I believe it was made in 1941 serial number F1429846.

I am getting it repaired right now (carriage does not move correctly).

Really glad to get it and add it to the collection. 

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

First thing I thought when I saw this is Upham from Saving Private Ryan, not Navy yes, but still! Awesome find!

Ha.  I was told it’s the same type that he picks up to bring with in the movie.  I haven’t confirmed that yet however.
