1940 Groma Modell N Serial # 216872 1940 Groma Modell N typewriter, Serial # 216872 Bob Dale's 1940 Groma Modell N typewriter. 2020-03-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Bob Dale: 1940 Groma Modell N Serial # 216872 A very attractive machine. This is one with the infamous ss keys although it has a QWERTY layout. I suspect that it may have been taken as 'war booty' and the Y and Z keys transposed. The labels on the shift keys look newer than the other keys as well.

A very attractive machine. This is one with the infamous ss keys although it has a QWERTY layout. I suspect that it may have been taken as 'war booty' and the Y and Z keys transposed. The labels on the shift keys look newer than the other keys as well.

Accidental collector.
I originally bought one typewriter for personal use, but within weeks was buying more as the collecting bug crept up on me. I am mainly interested in European makes from the 50s and 60s.
