Wait, just looked online. It is a Underwood Standard #5. The 5 has extra keys.

Technically, it's a Model 5E (84 character typeset with ribbon colour selector and paper guide options), and based on the serial number you provided, is was made in 1914.

I just happened to have "rescued" the same model (a 1925 machine) last week that was headed for the scrap yard, but it will be a long time before I begin its restoration.

Why are the space bars commonly cracked? (Kinda random)

Ooooh, please let us know how the decals go. I have a Royal 10 that really needs a new decal but I'm too nervous to just jump right in and do it...
