The Typewriter Database 1965 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3314027 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1965 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3314027 "Einstein"

Math keys and its good state of preservation make this a wonderful find. Was slightly jammed into the shell but managed to pop it out. Rear adhesive label is scuffed off. Otherwise very good shape, even the felt is soft and effective. Shiny coat!

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
