Underwood Standard Portable Typewriter with famous owner
Seller's notes: "And my main reason for the Underwood was because of Ernest Hemingway, his 1926 model sits in the Hemingway museum. Now it wasn't until I opened the lid of the typewriter that I found the letter with C.F Fraser-Smith and the repairers label on the base of the case, the emporium also had not done any research, so all in all it was a great find and surprise."
