This second version of the De Luxe Quiet Tab is probably the flashiest typewriter Underwood ever produced. The influence of contemporary automobile design is obvious. Slight changes were made to the top half of the shell. Note the button to release the ribbon cover and the swoopy carriage return lever. Not immediately apparent is a new geometric slab serif typeface--apparently based upon Memphis--that is more modern and artistic while still being professional enough for business use.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood De Luxe on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood De Luxe By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
