German Groma SS-Typewriter
This is a rare Groma Modell T typewriter by
G F Grosser Fabrik für Büromaschinen Markersdorf / Chemnitztal
It has the usual German keyboard with the exception of the substitution of the
rare Nazi SS sigrune lightning bolts on the number 3 key in the shifted position.
The number 3 key is no longer labeled with the SS runes, as someone was obviously
trying to hide after the war, that it is a SS typewriter.
The runes itself on the strike heads are little threadbare or flattened on the tips,
hence don't appear 100% clear on paper.
But I can't recognize any manipulation. Wear?
The keyboard is laid out in the QWERTZ pattern.
The Ä, Ö and Ü keys are also present on the right side of the keyboard.
The condition of the machine is still good with usual wear. It is fully operational.
The tab key on the right is missing. Both spools are original metal spools.
The paper table is lacking one small screw on the right, therefore a bit shaky.
The grasp of the wooden case seems to be a replacement.
The key for the lock is lacking.
The serial number is 243620.
