1978 Erika Präsident Deluxe Serial # 5869025 1978 Erika Präsident Deluxe typewriter, Serial # 5869025 James Gifford's 1978 Erika Präsident Deluxe typewriter. 2017-02-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1978 Erika Präsident Deluxe Serial # 5869025 This is a curious fellow, with its Robotronic typeface and round keys. It's a snappy typer, with a case with unusual latches that spin around rather than flipping up. The type is fairly crisp and after a good cleaning it will type well, though the German key arrangement will take some getting used to.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
