1939 Erika 5

Serial #862906/5

key close up.

I picked up this Erika Model 5 at a antique mall in Harrisonburg, VA on the way home from the NC typewriter group meet-up. The case was unsalvageable, literally falling apart in my hands. The key tops look they were wet at some point and there is minimal rusting inside the machine.

Other than a little surface wear the machine functions very well and types smooth.

I am a novelist and poet who happens to enjoy the thrill of the chase. I clean, fix, and hunt typewriters whenever I get the chance. My preferred poison is Underwood.
