1951 Hermes 2000

Serial #2019456

I painted the tops of some rusty Corona spools International Harvester Red.  I love how they look on this typewriter.  Subtle but a little extra flair on a machine which is fairly drab.

Excellent machine. It does pile sometimes (the opposite of skipping most 2000s do) but with careful typing that affect is minimalized. This machine is easily in my top 5 favorites, even having owned over 200. I never thought I'd enjoy a Hermes quite this much.
Came with no case, took one from another machine. This one and I are going places.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
