1934 Erika 5

Serial #202542

Brought back from Northern Italy (where Germans warehoused lots of stuff during the war) and used for many years by the seller's father who was in the Tenth Mountain Division of the US Army.

The seller thought this was unrepairable -- but never underestimate an Erika!

A new drawband, lots of cleaning, and some adjustments, and this typewriter works again. The keys are smooth, and it has an amazing feel -- better than my other typewriters from this era.
