Typewriter – Underwood 5 Standard photos and sample

Underwood  5 Standard Typewriter

Underwood 5 Standard Typewriter

I recently acquired this example of an Underwood 5 Standard Typewriter.  Serial number suggests that it was made in the second half of 1928 and sold by the Thomas & Corney Typewriters Ltd. of Toronto, Ontario.  The letter s is striking off line, but all else seems to work well.  This typewriter cost me $10 and $9 for a new ribbon.
