The Typewriter Database 1953 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5314709 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Joe Van Cleave: 1953 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5314709 Originally owned by USAF pilot and aircraft engineer who was a principal designer of the SR-71 jet engines.

When I acquired this machine, many keys would fail to advance the carriage; I added thin brass sleeves (tubes) to each linkage in order to fix the problem.

I'm the proud owner of a small collection of ten typewriters (thus far), all collected with the intent of being used. I also am a prolific blogger, usually written with the aid of a typewriter. http://joevancleave.com/
