  1. Could it be an Erika 9? For comparison, you can see pictures of mine here:

    1. Your Erika seems thicker and the shape of the spacebar is different, I don't know... unfortunately the quality of this photo is very low :-(

  2. I thought it was some sort of Royal, but Erika seems plausible.

  3. I can't tell. It has a look that's typical of many portables form the '30s to the early '50s.

    1. Wow, I think you nailed it: here's a torpedo that looks very very similar:
      (and I discovered another italian website with typewriters!)

  5. at first glance i thought it was a royal portable too but then you look at the keys and its a qwertz keyboard so its most likely german
    then i thought it looks like an erika (like others here)
    but after looking at your pics - i agree with shordzi that it is indeed a torpedo

    that was fun!
