DESCRIPTION

A good budget typewriter for beginners. Gorgeous teal 1957 Underwood Leader. Golden Touch. The color is the original finish and is in excellent condition.

The keystroke is wonderful; it was a pleasure to type. No bells or whistles on this typewriter, just the basics. No tabs, paper holder, line selector, or margin release. Simply a great basic vintage typewriter operationally and the exterior is lovely.

The right margin setting is for the bell, but the typewriter does not stop at the margin, which could explain why there’s no margin release on this model. As far as we can tell, this is the design of the machine and not a flaw.

The exterior is in excellent condition with no perceptible scratches or knicks. Overall, a great typewriter for beginners or teens and up as the manual nature of the typewriter is that it takes longer finders and a heavier hand to operate properly.

Please be sure to look at the photos closely and watch the typing DEMO video and the typewriter TUTORIAL videos. Remember, we SERVICE our typewriters. We do NOT Restore or Refurbish. We get the typewriters to a working condition using original
