1962 Alpina SK 24 Serial # 248939 1962 Alpina SK 24 typewriter, Serial # 248939 Alex Sandler's 1962 Alpina SK 24 typewriter. 2015-10-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alex Sandler: 1962 Alpina SK 24 Serial # 248939 Alpina typewriters are very rare in the former USSR, this one was brought here by a seaman in the late 1990s and never used since then.

Quite nice to use, but QWERTZ layout is still confusing me. Has a touch control and tabulator. Carriage shift seems not to be heavy (compared to Olympia SM3 and Moskva 6). There is also a Tipp-Ex holder glued to the right side.
