1977 Erika 105 Serial # 5740555 1977 Erika 105 typewriter, Serial # 5740555 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1977 Erika 105 typewriter. 2018-04-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1977 Erika 105 Serial # 5740555 East Germany still made quality products, even under the corroding iron curtain. This GDR word-chomper is not to be lumped in with the lackluster items that seemed to creep from the other side of the wall. Mechanically, it is brilliantly made, even if the quality of materials isn't what it used to be, and the quality control is second to none for a late seventies machine, regardless of country or manufacturer.
