condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Underwood
model name / number: No. 5
size / dimensions: 16"W x 13" D x 10"H
I pulled this amazing antique Underwood No. 5 from storage in what looks to be an original dust cover. It is marked with the serial number 1961040-5, which I researched and found the manufacture date to be April of 1925.
Aside from some residual antique dust, it is in perfect, fully functional condition.

The orange sticker is a service sticker, and although the letters have faded with time, it reads, "Call Donn Robinson For Service of Machine, Burien Office Machine Co., 203 SW 152nd, CR 33935".

All aspects of the machine, from each letter type hammer to the ringing margin bell work flawlessly.

General details and specs:

It has a black ribbon that winds with the use of the keys as it should.

It weighs approximately 30 lbs.

It measures approx. 16"W x 13" D x 10"H.

It comes with the dust cover that it was found with.
