1937 Seidel & Naumann Erika Model S Serial # 630991/S 1937 Seidel & Naumann Erika Model S typewriter, Serial # 630991/S Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1937 Seidel & Naumann Erika Model S typewriter. 2015-03-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1937 Seidel & Naumann Erika Model S Serial # 630991/S All´s well that ends well, said Shakespeare. And he was right.

This typewriter has given me nightmares. It was sold by a $%@! who assured it was in good condition. Well, it was not. It was extremely overpriced and it was rusty. No, it was somewhere far beyond being rusty. Then, I had to send it to my friend (the former chief of assembly line at the Olivetti plant in Barcelona), who after 2 months of hard work has given me this little wonder. And I say given because he charged me very little for his incredible work.

I couldn´t believe it when I saw the typewriter, shiny and fully functional. It´s great, it´s fantastic, it´s... A true pleasure. It´s the first one of the six I sent him after Christmas, and it´s been well worth the waiting.

The typewriter itself is a great piece of machinery. Reliable and quite fast, and above all accurate. I´m really happy with this little guy!

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
