The Typewriter Database 1935 Hermes Baby Serial # 63276 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick Winter: 1935 Hermes Baby Serial # 63276 I should stop trawling eBay late at night, but I guess I could justify that bad habit with finds like this. It's a pretty early Baby, and more interesting still it has a cryptic LP/mls key. I believe this is for the Palestinian pound, used back when Palestine became a British Mandate after WWI. The pound was subdivided into 1000 mils, hence the symbols. I wonder what the story behind this machine is! What things it must have seen...

Possibly the most amateur typewriter collector ever? Uni student located in Sydney, AUS. The amount of storage I have is a constant problem as I try to keep feeding my addiction...
