1947 Underwood Leader Serial # H1882792 1947 Underwood Leader typewriter, Serial # H1882792 Michael Hoehne's 1947 Underwood Leader typewriter. 2015-09-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1947 Underwood Leader Serial # H1882792 Picked up at a yard sale. The keys will clean up OK. Functions pretty well.

Apparently if a designer doesn't provide a ribbon color changing mechanism, he can just charge right through the middle of the ribbon. Of course, that does preclude flipping the ribbon over to double its life... And if you inadvertently buy a two-color ribbon....

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
