The Typewriter Database 1960 Hermes Ambassador Serial # 867796 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Wood: 1960 Hermes Ambassador Serial # 867796 Huge hulking beast of a machine.

Platen and carriage come off in seconds.

Typeface is a large pica font and quite a nice style

The most comfortable key tops ever.

Huge backspace and tab button. Lovely large carriage return arm

Almost types by itself.

Its size and weight are the only reason I don't use this as my everyday typer.

Typewriter collector, previous sewing machine collector.

Originally from the Garden of England, Kent. I have lived in Sheffield for over fifteen years.

As a young child, I always enjoyed taking things apart and seeing how they functioned.

I have been collecting a range of vintage typewriters for over two years.

Previously, I was interested in restoring sewing machines, then I acquired my mothers Olivetti Dora and looked under the hood and typed, I was hooked on typewriters and how they worked.

I learn something every day from passionate bloggers and typewriter enthusiasts.

Fan of Joe Van Cleave's typewriter video series.
