1987 Erika 34 Serial # 7684403 1987 Erika 34 typewriter, Serial # 7684403 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1987 Erika 34 typewriter. 2024-06-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1987 Erika 34 Serial # 7684403 Excellent build quality for its era. Although the typing action isn't heavy, typing on this machine is tiring after a while.

Notice that the alignment guides have a uniform design (probably to save costs).

I wasn't impressed by the body design at first, but after a while it started to grow on me. The design is unobtrusive, yet it has its own personality because it's both rounded and angular.
