WTB: pre-1963-ish Erika (or any of the re-branded models)

Hi there,

After hearing enough high praise to fill an Olympic swimming pool, I've decided that I want to add an Erika to my collection. I know they were made under a large number of names, so I'm open to any of the variations, as long as they are East German. After noticing an alarming trend with Ebay's prices, I wanted to come here first and see if anyone had one for a more reasonable price. I'm pretty flexible on the model, with a preference toward the M, the 5, and the 10, respectively, but open to a number of other models as well. I'm posting this now to start my search early, but I intend on shopping around for a while. Feel free to message me on here with questions or send a private message my way with any offers. My only real restriction is the age (I'm not a fan of the mid-60's or later designs) and the keyboard. I just need a Latin alphabet--QWERTZ, QWERTY, AZERTY, etc. should all be fine. I'm learning the Cyrillic and Greek alphabets, but I'm not quite ready to use them for my writing just yet 

Thanks in advance!

Oh--one quick comment: While I'm not going to be too picky in this category: shiny black > just about any other color. Like I said, not super picky, but if it comes down to two identical machines, shiny black probably wins.
