196X Groma Kolibri Serial # 689432 196X Groma Kolibri typewriter, Serial # 689432 Alex Sandler's 196X Groma Kolibri typewriter. 2015-11-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alex Sandler: 196X Groma Kolibri Serial # 689432 1961 or 1962. It came without any documents and even a case, bought on an estate sale. Probably had Latin layout, remade into Cyrillic one. This can explain mismatching keytops colour.

Has some mechanical and lots of paint issues, but remains the only typewriter that can travel with me anywhere.
