1965 Underwood 18 Serial # U-611117-085 1965 Underwood 18 typewriter, Serial # U-611117-085 Michael Bartelt's 1965 Underwood 18 typewriter. 2021-01-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Bartelt: 1965 Underwood 18 Serial # U-611117-085 An exceptional piece of Italian manufacturing. Types almost as well as a Lettera 22, but I prefer the basket shift on the Olivetti, not to mention the tabulator and ribbon color change. Think of her as a kind of stripped down Olivetti Lettera. At the end of the day, she types like a Tuscan dream.
