1939 Erika 5 Serial # 862906/5 1939 Erika 5 typewriter, Serial # 862906/5 Monica Schroeder's 1939 Erika 5 typewriter. 2015-01-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Monica Schroeder: 1939 Erika 5 Serial # 862906/5 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.
