A 1926 Underwood No.3 Telegraph Machine

This No. 3 was extremely dirty and splattered with white paint.

Caps only type with numbers and very few punctuation marks.

The platen assembly tips forward to install forms.


You wouldn't believe I cleaned this place out three months ago.

I can't fit more than three or four customers in the shop at a time.

This beautiful machine is mint.

The owner of this machine thinks it will help his writing.

This keyboard looks brand new.
