Underwood 1 (1896)
Wagner Typewriter Co., New Jersey, USA

The Underwood Typewriter was the first widely successful, modern typewriter. It pulled together the two main design elements that would be found on all later machines, a four-row keyboard with front strike type-bars, giving visible typing. The Underwood was not the first to offer these essential features, but it was by far the best-engineered machine to have sone so by 1896.

The Underwood, within a few years, established the standard design for all typewriters to follow in the twentieth century.

This typewriter sold for $100.
