The American-made Underwood Universal is one of the classic pre-war portable typewriters, with a design heritage going back to the original 1919 Underwood 3-bank portable.  This machine features the famous Underwood 'Champion' keyboard - an early attempt at an ergonomic design of keytop with the typist's comfort in mind.  It features a keyboard touch control, freehead (useful for lining up pre-printed forms) concealed margins and 42-character keyboard

Fully refurbished and with some of the rubber parts recently replaced, this is a fully practical typewriter ideal for writing the occasional letter.  Furthermore it takes a readily-available ribbon which is still in current production !
