1961 Erika 20 Serial # 4011443 1961 Erika 20 typewriter, Serial # 4011443 Alexander Gehler's 1961 Erika 20 typewriter. 2023-09-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alexander Gehler: 1961 Erika 20 Serial # 4011443 The Erika 20 is a relatively rare typewriter because it was only built for a short time. The complex mechanics, which revived the characteristics of the Erika M from the 1930s, required a high price, too high for the time.

My Erika 20 is in excellent technical condition. A small paint damage comes from transport. It is used regularly. The advantage is the small font, the so-called Perl, i.e. a smaller pica.

I have been collecting typewriters since 2022. I now own around 50 of them.
I use typewriters every day, either for letters or my diary.
