1943 Erika 5

Serial #1095699/5

There is no denying: this machine is an incredible typer. Engineered to be a writer's dream, the carriage return is smooth as silk and the key action has a comfortable resistance.

For a prewar machine, this late model Erika 5 is unmistakably modern. The typing feel is best described as a baseball pitch: loose arm, then snap!
