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 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.
