▪️A handsome dark green vintage typewriter. This Underwood Universal has a metal logo plate on the front and the original dark green matte finish is in very nice condition. A few of the keys show some signs of scratching/wear. Also, the right platen handle feels loose, but still works. The bell does not work.

▪️The performance/keystroke on this typewriter is AMAZING! So smooth and the typeface is very clean. Tabs are not available on this model. It’s very attractive and performs well overall.

▪️One other note, the Margin Release works a bit differently so please watch the DEMO VIDEO or the TUTORIAL so you can see how to use the margin release.
