195X Underwood Leader Serial # Unknown 195X Underwood Leader typewriter, Serial # Unknown Gerald Ambrose's 195X Underwood Leader typewriter. 2016-12-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 195X Underwood Leader Serial # Unknown I had this Underwood Leader for many years before I finally sold it. Honestly, I never really enjoyed using it. It was probably one of THE LOUDEST typewriters I have ever had or experienced (its either tied or ahead of the only electric typewriter I had, a Smith Corona 2200).
It was also missing (I think) the bell mechanism and the line lock didn't work.

But it did work, had a nice keyboard feel, and it was in amazing cosmetic condition.

I think that it was from 1953, but cannot be sure.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
