1949 Underwood Leader

Serial #H1861839

I fixed this for a friend. It is in great shape cosmetically. However, the ribbon cover was slammed on to the ribbon u-bars (slots) and threw off the entire ribbon advance and reverse mechanism.

Through "creative bending" I was able to restore the ribbon advance.

While this "budget" model lacks bichrome ribbon, an adjustable right margin, tab stops, and other extras, it does have a few math keys that I wish I had on my other typewriters from this era. I suppose this was marketed to students.
