1951 Alpina SK 24 Serial # 12557 1951 Alpina SK 24 typewriter, Serial # 12557 James Arya's 1951 Alpina SK 24 typewriter. 2024-03-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Arya: 1951 Alpina SK 24 Serial # 12557 After reading Robert Messenger's great article on Alpina's history (referenced), I knew I had to get an Alpina typewriter. Being related to the Germain automotive company who modifies high-performance BMW models, this might be the cheapest way into an Alpina. This typewriter was listed on Ebay which I pruchased 50% off the asking price. It is a great typewriter and is very smooth. Everything works perfectly. Comes with a quite ugly faux-crocodile leather case and the two original cleaning brushes (one soft and one stiff).
