1957 Erika 10 Serial # 1832136 1957 Erika 10 typewriter, Serial # 1832136 Kristians Luhaers's 1957 Erika 10 typewriter. 2016-04-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kristians Luhaers: 1957 Erika 10 Serial # 1832136 An ebay purchase - so called "Dachbodenfund". Seller has no idea does it work or not. Well, it didn't. Arrived dusty, with jammed and broken carriage and without a case. Seller put up only one blurry picture, but the price (1 EUR) was worth risking. Took me about a week to fix it. Now it works as buttered.
The look of this "black beast" somehow reminds me the soviet Typhoon class nuclear submarines. When you press the knob down on the right side of body, the hatch opens... ready to launch a nuclear missile.
Scarry... :)

TYPEWRITERS...
Doesn't they look sexy to you? Such a number of different shapes, forms and colors.... All those complicated and not so complicated mechanisms, levers and arms, gears and sprockets... how they became alive and start dancing at your fingertip punches...
It started on December 2015 when I bought my second typewriter... Beaten, damaged, dusty... I took it apart, cleaned, repaired. Since then it became as an obsession... Now there are more than dozen.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Erika 10 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Erika Serial Number page and the Erika 10 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
