1958 Neckermann (Groma) Brillant Junior Serial # 623670 1958 Neckermann (Groma) Brillant Junior typewriter, Serial # 623670 Carl H's 1958 Neckermann (Groma) Brillant Junior typewriter. 2017-07-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Carl H: 1958 Neckermann (Groma) Brillant Junior Serial # 623670 I always saw some Groma Kolibri on eBay and always wondered about the high prices they reached. Now I had the chance to buy one at a flea market for a good price and to look if it is worth what some people paying online. I think it is a very nice and flat machine. But there are other really good machines out there that you get for just a few euros.
There is a bit of rust, but it's only a thin rust film. Unfortunately paint on the "paper scale" is partly damaged.

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
