Underwood Portable Typewriter II circa 1926

This typewriter is around 80 years old. Marketed as a portable typewrite it still weights a ton. Notice how the numeral "1" is missing, the "L" in lower case doubles up as the "1" .... making it lighter in weight. The carry case is also a dead giveaway that it is a portable typewriter! It still works perfectly and I just change the ribbon not long ago! No spell check though.
