Hi, I have an Underwood Elliott Fisher typewriter. There is a serial number(###) ###-####11 on the right hand side under the carriage. The front on the machine has "Copyright 1923" in small print. Can you tell me what model, approx yr of manufacture, resale price range? Thank you.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

The item was purchased used, approx. 40 yrs ago.

Hi,

Your typewriter was made in June of 1924, this is a model "11". These are selling for $200-300 at auction and on the secondhand market. This is assuming it is in good working condition.

Thank you,

Wayne
