Vintage Duotone Blue 1932 Underwood Noiseless Portable Working Typewriter with Carrying Case
Very rare Duotone Blue, the vast majority of these are black, seen a couple red and duotone green ones but never in this color-way, possibly a special order. Manufactured in February 1932, the first year for the noiseless portables, Serial #542475.The gem of all portables. Compared to the clatter and chatter of some earlier typewriters, this machine speaks in a whisper. The Underwood Noiseless Portable combines the new speed writing mechanism with noiseless operation plus many standard machine conveniences -- yet it\'s portable at less than 16 pounds. Workers and writers of the day appreciated this machine for its fast, effortless typing, and especially the luxury of quiet operation. Another feature of the machine accentuated in its advertisements was its suitability for students to use while in study halls and university libraries.
Overall excellent condition, all keys work correctly, needs new ribbon (can be purchased on Amazon for $7-12), carrying case shows wear from age and use but still opens/closes correctly and latches well.
