Interesting stamp on back (2nd image) can't wait to learn more... anybody? (Thanks Richard...)
The fact that the Russian occupation lasted until 1949 should help to date this typewriter (or not). Turns out this is actually a rebranded "Erika 10".
The color name is "green fish".
I'll bet this one has a very interesting story...

"I was born in a crossfire hurricaneÃ¢â¬ï¿½...
A professor in college gave me the gift and appreciation of the letter form.
Typewriters are just little "print shops" for me.
I have an MFA in 3D Digital Sculpture.
I no longer mold young minds, by teaching art to high school students, everyday is a safari now...
In my spare time I own and operate an equal opportunity rescue shelter for all makes and models of typewriters that have been abandoned in the bottoms of closets.
