This seems to be a student model, with no tab and no ribbon color selector. This is surprisingly tinny; I expected better from Underwood.

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.
