1961 Erika 20 Serial # 4002249 1961 Erika 20 typewriter, Serial # 4002249 Sergei Viktorovich's 1961 Erika 20 typewriter. 2015-10-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sergei Viktorovich: 1961 Erika 20 Serial # 4002249 Erika mod.20 with standard carriage in classic green-metallic colour.
It's a rare and the heaviest model of all post-war Erika's (near 12kg for typewriter with case).
It has nterchangeable carriage, four different line spacing, adjusting the resistance of the movement of the carriage and two different letter spacing such as STANDARD and S T R E T C H E D.
I don't know why this model never became popular, but I can say for sure - it is really unkillable typewriter.

Hi!
I'm Sergei, I was made in Russia)))))))
I wouldn't call myself a hunter - I just love typewriters, use them and collect some of them.
Many of it comes and goes out, solds to someone else, and others who "gets" me, remains)
I can't tell where I've developed a passion for typewriters. It seems that I was born with it. At least for as long as I can remember, I have always loved it. The first machine I bought in 2008. It was our, Soviet "Lyubava", a copy of "Erika". Before it, I've seen typeriters only on pictures)
