1971 Hermes 3000

Serial #7173068

A great typewriter, but in need of repair. It sports a big whack on the left side of the carriage, and some functions do not work. It still types, though, and that is enough to see there is top level machinery under such circumstances (and a lot of dirt inside). I also love its design.

I got this typewriter in Salamanca, and it is the first of a series of six.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
