Working Early 1970s Erika Model 43 Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Germany
Working Erika Model 43 manual portable typewriter in London (U.K.).
This typewriter was manufactured in the early 1970s, in Berlin, Germany.
Regardless of its age, the Erika machine works perfectly well! The comfortable and light keys are smooth when typing and it gives an even, enjoyable response. All the mechanisms work sharply as intended. This sturdy typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so it is ready for immediate action. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall mechanical condition is very good. All of the keys work without sticking and the typewriter types evenly. Minor signs of use and age are present, particularly on the panel behind the platen (roller) – please refer to photos.
The Erika Model 43 typewriter would suit any typist with or without typing skills. This typewriter would be suitable for typing long projects.
