1930 Erika 5 Serial # 117830 1930 Erika 5 typewriter, Serial # 117830 Mark Schrad's 1930 Erika 5 typewriter. 2021-01-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1930 Erika 5 Serial # 117830 I got this gorgeous burgundy 1930 Erika 5--with matching burgundy leather case with regal purple velvet interior--in December 2020 in Holmeson, New Jersey. It is absolutely beautiful. There are some broken linkages underneath that I can't currently get to, since the base is currently secured quite solidly to the machine. The platen is rock hard, but it has so much potential.
