In the 1950s, Underwood had diversified its portfolio by attempting to put various features into different designs, but it seems most of the variations were for marketing purposes. To indicate which features you would receive, they called their models either "Universal" or "DeLuxe", differing only in very minor ways, such as the paper holder featured in the DeLuxe as opposed to the Universal. You can see how the different Quiet Tab models were advertised in the newspaper clipping to your left, taken from page 18 of The Call, published December 8, 1955. You can also compare for yourself between this 1955 blue Universal Quiet Tab, and the 1954 brown DeLuxe Quiet Tab featured on this site.
