The Typewriter Database 1940 Underwood DeLuxe Leader Serial # E1321849 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1940 Underwood DeLuxe Leader Serial # E1321849 This gorgeous little typer was a throw-in in a purchase of three machines. I love it, especially the hinged flip-up ribbon cover and the vertical racing stripes. The paint is crisp, as are the decals. Almost flawless. The only blemish is a rotated Y key--not sure Y. Needs a ribbon. I can see myself writing something brilliant on this. It's the kind of machine that be osmosis would make anyone type and write better.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
