If you ask me, I charge one nice mid-century German-made portable. Received this one for doing just that - Thanks, Key Snap! :D
It is starting to exert a personality and thus a name. "Roosevelt" is coming to mind...
This is a re-labeled Erika 10 for the American market, identical to the Optima Humber 88 (Canadian market), Ursula and other brandings, and as the user manual shows, also marks the change of the Optima Super from the Olympia-derived mechanism to being just a relabel of the Erika 10.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
