Very nice machine! I have one like that but with the woodgrain finish so in vogue in the 1930s. Very nice typer, though for sheer compactness I still prefer the earlier model, with the three-bank keyboard.

You make me wish I had one. I'm working on my Corona 3's drawstring. When I got it, it was snapped. What a pain in the rear this is to fix. On an Underwood 5 it looks way easier.

So beautiful! Makes me want to get one to go with my Standard 3 'bigger brother'.
