1964 Aztec (Erika) 15 Serial # 3045294 1964 Aztec (Erika) 15 typewriter, Serial # 3045294 Taylor Harbin's 1964 Aztec (Erika) 15 typewriter. 2015-08-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Taylor Harbin: 1964 Aztec (Erika) 15 Serial # 3045294 This is an unusual typewriter I snagged off shopgoodwill.com. It can be fixed to the bottom half of the leather case. An interesting specimen that apparently saw a lot of use in a previous life, but not a high quality machine. The carriage return is weak, which makes going from line to line difficult. There is no tabulating system or touch control, but the keys have a nice shape.

One odd feature is that you have to set the margins by using two levers in the BACK of the machine.

I am a professional historian and writer. I have been collecting typewriters since 2013, and use them for all of my work (novels, short stories, poetry, non-fiction, and personal letters). I have a passion for all things antique, but hold a special place for these tools. Some of my collection is up for sale or trade, so if you see something you want, let me know!
