1951 Underwood Leader Serial # H2089072 1951 Underwood Leader typewriter, Serial # H2089072 JP Huard's 1951 Underwood Leader typewriter. 2014-12-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of JP Huard: 1951 Underwood Leader Serial # H2089072 I picked this machine up from a local antique shop because the color combination is to die for (I'm a sucker for black and grey), and because it came with the key for the case and factory tag still attached to the key. Being honest again, I ended up putting off working on it at all until interest was expressed in it.

Like the Noiseless 77 I had, this machine also went to Monica in a trade... This is the condition I got it in, didn't do any cleaning whatsoever and didn't replace the ribbon, but the type sample came out remarkably clean.
