1960s Cursive Underwood 21
Up for sale is an Underwood-Olivetti 21 which was made in Barcelona, Spain sometime in the 1960s. This typewriter wouldn't be anything too special as it is, however it types in cursive (see second photo for a type sample) This typewriter is in good shape overall, although cosmetically it isn't in perfect shape. The paint has a few spots showing evidence of wear (see all photos) and the case seems to be slightly deformed around the edges. The case is also a bit worn, but it still does its job as it should. The typewriter is fully functional right down to the bell, and is an excellent and reliable typewriter to write with. It does not use universal ribbons, however Olivetti ribbons which fit are readily available on eBay or Amazon, otherwise the spools could be rethread. This typewriter also comes with the original instructions manual, which although a bit battered, is still readable. This typewriter is rather long and heavy, so it's on the larger end as far as portables go. If you're in the market for a reliable cursive typewriter which can be used heavily, then this is an excellent and uncommon option.
