The Typewriter Database 1959 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5742859 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1959 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5742859 Another find from the Northern Virginia craigslist for $50 which is a great price for a rocket. The carriage return lever was severely bent but I have mostly straightened it out. This machine works like a charm. I prefer my L32 but when I want something different that fits in a backpack it is usually the Hermes.
