1939 Underwood Universal Serial # F1231417 1939 Underwood Universal typewriter, Serial # F1231417 Septimus Clark's 1939 Underwood Universal typewriter. 2021-02-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Septimus Clark: 1939 Underwood Universal Serial # F1231417 There's an un-ostentatious elegance to this one. Maybe that's why the US military used them(?) Those jewel-like green keys and onyx black shift keys (nothing but finger polish on those) captured in their silver mounts and set off against the dusty black crinkle and chrome piping. It's no wonder that some people think old typewriter keys would make good jewelry. And the audacity of the designers - putting decals over crinkle paint!
