The Typewriter Database 1975 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7416737 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1975 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7416737 Purchased on eBay a long time ago for $29. I didn't know it had a cool typeface until I got it. It's a good machine, but not great, and the plastic body causes it to be a lot less rigid than its predecessors. This machine was made in Hungary.

I got a green ribbon because I wanted a green ribbon and I thought for a long time about which machine to put it on. This one needed some color. I named it TK-421 at the suggestion of Ted Munk actually because my friends and I agree it looks like a storm trooper.
