Here is my 1939 Erika - rune key on the RM key - with the manual.

Hi Sarge,

Can you give the exact names of those portable typewriters that have the SS rune key? Maybe even put some pictures up?

Here are some photos. I don't have a photo of the Torpedo 6 desk model or a couple of the others. I have also seen this brand in a portable. The continental carriage is off of a desk model and is for legal size or fininancial leger sheets or such as it is a long carriage - the only one I've ever seen.

This last photo is of a Czech made, probably mid/late war (?) as it is all bakelite. It does not have the rune key, but a friend has one exactly like it with the rune key. It's burried away so I can't look to see if there is a brand name some where on it.

That is a maker I don't have and is a desk model rather than a portable.
Unfortunately shipping would be about as much as the typewriter. :( Ohh well such is life!

Does anyone know anything about this typewriter? 1939 Erika ( or at least I think its an Erika.The odd thing about this one is that the ss rune key and the sa key have a separate key by themselves on the top right corner. In all my reseach I have not seen a rune ss in this location, nor have I seen an SA key on any Erika or any brand.
