Awesome script machine! And you are right, for the time being, anyway, it seems to be resistant to text recognition software.
Which leads me to suggest every member of the insurgency should have one!
Underwood called this “Vertical Script”, and it’s *usually* seen on old 1940’s Finger-Flites. It has been found on Lettera 22’s though, so finding it on a Smith-Corona isn’t surprising. Dealers would often re-type a machine with whatever typeface you wanted.
