1968 Hermes Baby #9058177


This predominantly plastic Hermes Baby has quite a wooden feel to it, but that’s only a problem if you compare it with a better portable typewriter. Taken on its own, it’s not that bad to type on. The woodenness deadens the noise, but not so much the typing experience, and after a short while you find yourself happily picking up speed. 6 out of 10.

(SOLD to a mother for daughter.)

Typewriter enthusiast, Perth Western Australia. I began collecting typewriters in order to spend less time in front of a computer. Yeah, like that worked... !!

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Hermes Baby on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Hermes Serial Number page and the Hermes Baby By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
