The Typewriter Database 1974 Erika 47 Serial # 5000853 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Carl H: 1974 Erika 47 Serial # 5000853 I always wanted a left-running carriage typewriter. I always thought I will bring back one from a trip to Israel. Now I have found this typewriter in my hometown!

The left platen knob is missing. The wrong line spacing is because of the small sheet of paper I used. It is not a mechanical problem of the typewriter.

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
