  1. I’ve seen an Underwood with that lever one time and could not figure out what it did.
    Nice No. 5. One day I hope to add one to the collection. Everything I read on the early Underwood puts them way ahead of all the others on ease of typing.

      They are great… they made lots of them. So wait for the one you want at the price you want there are plenty of them out there. Some of the worse one’s are over priced and the best are every price you can imagine.

  2. i have a number 5 underwood serial no. 121775. circa 1908, it does not have any back space key or lever. and no toggle ribbon selector, i real head scratcher!!!
