(There is another lever on the machine that is very simular which acts to change the color of ink when using a bi or tri color ink spool and could be removed and molded to create a copy via CNC). I attached a photo as well from the manual. Original Info------ Antique Underwood Standard 4 bank Portable Typewriter made in 1929 with the exclusive wood grain finish.
The typewriter is mounted to the bottom of the case firmly and the case is structurly as well as cosmeticly in great shape. Condition: As far as the mechanics in both the typewriter and case, as mentioned to the best of my knowlege all features and functions are work. As seen in the photos there is wear on the woodgrain finish on the bottom bar where the original owner would rest there wrists. Also there is wear on the back of the unit where the patent information is listed.The case is missing the leather handle and the key (both can easily be replaced). The box is unlocked and the button is slid to open the case. The locking and mechanism as well as the slide still work and it openes and closes with ease.
The original sticker for the typewriter is still intact and pasted on the inside lid (see photos). Also this item has been stored for many years in its case and displayed in my home. Where it was not exposed to ciggerette smoke or any foul odars, as well as direct sunlight. The case dose have an odor of an old antique... Its hard to describe although its not bothersome and could be likely removed with an onzone generater purifer.Please view photos for anything I have missed as well as feel free to measage ne anytime about the item. I have yet to see another in such a fine working condtion and cosmetic condtion and is absloutely one of a kind in its quality and preservation.
