This is a typewriter in his own suitecase, so this machine was protected all life long. This Erika typewriter from model 34 has been produced in the former German Democratic Repuplic in Berlin during the years of the "Cold War". So It is produced in (East) Germany arround 1960. The machine has been carefully cleaned and re-tuned so you can enjoy again it for a long time. You can use it as a decoration but also work with it. The print quality is very good thanks to the new ribbon I mounted. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask me for more information.
