1961 Erika 20 Serial # 4001725 1961 Erika 20 typewriter, Serial # 4001725 Kristian Faulkenberry's 1961 Erika 20 typewriter. 2022-05-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kristian Faulkenberry: 1961 Erika 20 Serial # 4001725 East German model many equate to the fabled model M; an apt comparison. With the visible margin set easily via the buttons on the carriage, tab set and clear buttons on the left and d o u b l e s p a c e on the right. The quirky window for your computer selector, spring loaded ribbon cover, and locks for the case inside the machine are all points that I appreciate. The typing experience was very similar to my model M, and I feel this will get a lot of use in the coming years.
