1962 Moskva 6 Serial # 93547 1962 Moskva 6 typewriter, Serial # 93547 Alex Sandler's 1962 Moskva 6 typewriter. 2015-12-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alex Sandler: 1962 Moskva 6 Serial # 93547 Came to me from a retired streetcar driver. It had no protective case, so I bought a beat-up Ortekh (with case) just to have a home for Moskva.

Moskva 5/6/7 models' appearance resemble Smith-Corona of mid-1950s. Though, I believe that typing experience on SC would be completely different. Moskva is just another soviet typewriter, with generally low quality and heavy carriage shifting.

No tabulator, no colour selector, no touch control, but interchangeable carriages. Wide-carriage model was numbered 7 and appears to be quite rare now. I've seen one of them, but wide M7 carriage was already replaced with standard one.
