This Leader is a Champion in my book...


And here she is. Nice looking, though nothing fancy. Notice the bits of carbon paper and the like in the back of the case.


Awesome service sticker from Lebanon, PA, which is a little over an hour from where I live. I absolutely love these local service stickers.


Side of the typewriter. Hey, wait a minute. A lock on the SIDE of the case? Hmmm...


What's this?


Dear god...


Second tier. Notice my two pitbull/labs (Zannah & Zinnie) sleeping on their new found favorite blanket.


Third Tier.


Would you look at that...


The complete package. Not too shabby...
