1950 Optima Humber 77 Serial # 2084167 1950 Optima Humber 77 typewriter, Serial # 2084167 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1950 Optima Humber 77 typewriter. 2018-04-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1950 Optima Humber 77 Serial # 2084167 It screams of Groma, but it is still not confirmed. It is, however, typical of German machines. Firm but precise, and subtly denser than other Euro makes, and much denser feeling than North American Machines. Bubbling with fifties curves, rather European Fifties curves, it has a confident sense of style but utilitarian functionality.
