1956 Groma Kolibri Serial # 581689 1956 Groma Kolibri typewriter, Serial # 581689 Michael Hurley's 1956 Groma Kolibri typewriter. 2016-01-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hurley: 1956 Groma Kolibri Serial # 581689 I found this one online. It came to me with a broken mainspring and several other issues. It's mostly working now, though I still need to tweak a few things and put a new ribbon in. (I wouldn't suggest trying to replace the mainspring on one of these. It's not for the faint of heart.) Cosmetically it's in fair condition, though it has certainly seen it's share of use. Interestingly, it has an entirely US keyboard.

11CPI.

I'm a newbie and amateur typewriter "collector" in Memphis, TN. I have a small collection I hope to expand in time.
