I had the privilege of buying this locally-owned Underwood Noiseless Typewriter a few weeks ago. This machine has an interesting history. It was owned by a retired attorney whose father and cousin both used it in law school and in their law practices. What a piece of family history. But, it now needs a new home that will appreciate it as not only a piece of history but a beautiful noiseless typewriter.
For about 20 years, Remington manufactured this typewriter for Underwood and is often known not only as a real workhorse but a beautifully designed machine.
From my experience, people love the "Noiseless" typewriter or they don't like it at all. The typing action is different than a standard portable but I enjoy using it alongside my other machines. If you're a typewriter collector, this belongs in your collection.
As with all our machines, it has been fully refurbished. We clean the machine with solvent to remove all old grease and oil. We then lubricate it and make any needed adjustments. We even install a new ribbon!
This one comes in a nice case showing only minor wear for its age. Please do look at each photo as we do our best to represent the machine as it really is.
If you have any questions, please ask. We're happy to help.
