1956 Underwood Leader

Serial #CA2671278

Bloomington Illinois antique mall purchase.
Heavy, all-metal machine. Came with case. Case had reddish brown dust in it. Had to clean that gunk out. Machine was fairly clean. So right out of the dirty case, it typed well with a solid feel.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
