1958 Groma Kolibri #621687


One-owner and in great condition. Just needed the lightest of lubing to get it running smoothly. I bought it for £41 from a secretary in Orpington, Kent. She'd learned to type on it at the start of her career. I don't know the official colour designation but I call it butterscotch over pistachio.

Typeface Specimen:


Rear view - no louvres

Sprung hinge on return lever

Hunter: Rob Bowker (typewriterheaven)

Status: Typewriter Hunter
Points: 622

I'm an opportunistic collector and user. Yep, I have a habit, but I'm in control, OK?
