Achtung! 1957 Alpina in das Haus!

USPS just delivered my latest irrational late-night eBay purchase – a 1957 Alpina N24 manual typewriter (S/N 107038) with German QWERTZ layout.   She’s a beaut, and everything seems mechanically sound, despite having acquired a few extra scratches due to inadequate packing by the shipper.  It needs cleaned, oiled, and a new ribbon installed, but I just couldn’t resist posting a few “before” pics straight out of the box first.
