1950 Voss ST24 Serial # 114442 1950 Voss ST24 typewriter, Serial # 114442 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1950 Voss ST24 typewriter. 2018-05-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1950 Voss ST24 Serial # 114442 Curves ahead! This "Sad-Face" Voss is just about the main typewriter that Voss is known for. After the brittleness of their earlier typewrite bodies, they set out to make what must be the most solidly cast alloy body ever put on a typewriter. This particular Voss was originally imported to the United States where it was purchased by a mining company based in Arizona. Ultimately the machine made it's way to Peru with the company where they proceeded to start their mining operations. In the late 1960's the company switched over to electric machines at which point they sold off their manual machines. A Canadian family living in Peru at the time purchased it from the company before leaving the country due to political and social unrest.
