1958 Groma Kolibri Serial # 621687 1958 Groma Kolibri typewriter, Serial # 621687 Rob Bowker's 1958 Groma Kolibri typewriter. 2016-10-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Rob Bowker: 1958 Groma Kolibri Serial # 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.

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