1965 Underwood 21 Portable Typewriter and Case by Olivetti Plant Built in Barcelona, Spain - TYPES PERFECTLY - Super Clean

$150.00

A vintage and completely working and functional 1965 Underwood 21 Portable Typewriter and travel case built in Barcelona, Spain by the Olivetti Plant under contract.

A beautifully preserved Underwood 21 with a red and black ink ribbon with lots of life left. You can type with this unit on arrival. The interior and keys are immaculately clean. This is another personal typewriter from our extensive collection that we have decided to let go. This model was meant for journalists and writers to take with them on trains and buses while travelling, it was made slightly larger than previous portables, and was often interchangeably used as an office and travel typewriter. It is a complete workhorse and will serve you for decades to come. Serial number of 640074 puts this typewriter being built between 1964-65, the Olivetti plant was known for making incredibly well-built typewriters and they continued to make units for Underwood for most of the 60s. Great snappy key action.

Inside the typewriter case is an unused black plastic dust cover and the original purchase receipt from Kansas City Business Machines from 1/4/65 (original cost, $84.50 with 5 year warranty (excluding rubber and ribbons)).

I have inspected and tested this typewriter in my shop. Unit was typed on and a sample of it is posted as a photo. Look at all photos and ask any questions you may have before purchasing. Thanks! We have sold many typewriters to lots of happy customers, please check our feedback. We only sell good working units that we have enjoyed ourselves.

Another fine vintage item from Steamcrunk.
