The Typewriter Database 1928 Torpedo 12 Serial # 96318 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alex Sandler: 1928 Torpedo 12 Serial # 96318 German / French layout. Pica type.

This Torpedo was bought by the previous owner in 1967 at the thrift shop for 60 rubles (compare to a new Moskva 6 at 110 rubles). She was probably a teacher, as I could see through some papers left in the case. Years of misstorage damaged this nice little machine, but I've managed to return it to the operable condition.

Later it was handed over to a person on whose behalf it was actually resqued and repaired.
