Basically a Lettera 35 in a plastic shell with Underwood badging. I suspect the frames follow Olivetti Lettera 35 series. Pica typeface, nice feel, but too bulbous and lightweight. Slides all over the desk when typing. Main difference is the return lever, which is not the Olivetti-style folding paddle.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
