199x AEG (Olympia) Alphetta Serial # 9210896 199x AEG (Olympia) Alphetta typewriter, Serial # 9210896 Gaël Franceschi's 199x AEG (Olympia) Alphetta typewriter. 2019-09-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gaël Franceschi: 199x AEG (Olympia) Alphetta Serial # 9210896 Haven't found anything about this machine on the internet, so I had to suppose a manufacture date since I have approximately no idea of when it was made... looks a 1987-90 machine.
I bought this machine on August 2019, it was still in the original box and contained two ink cartridges, never opened with the instructions book. The woman who sold it to me looked to take a huge attention!

EDIT: found on the French Craigslists exactly the same typer but under the name "Rover 246". Still a mystery since I also couldn't find anything about it.

The serial number. As you could expect, the mechanism is quite simple since it's a daisywheel machine.

Some of the features of the machine. Some others are missing but there are some quite cool.

I've been collecting typewriters for 3 years now, and I spend some of my free time going in flea markets or on the internet to find some good deals.
