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.
