The Typewriter Database 1943 Erika 5 Tab Serial # 1056914/5 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1943 Erika 5 Tab Serial # 1056914/5 A very well used example, and given its provenance, one that will be among the last to go when the collection is sold off. The original owner's daughter provided in great detail the history of this machine, which had originally been bought in Köln, and had been used by her father to type his diary entries in a bomb shelter as the Allies leveled the city around him.
