1964 Hermes 3000

Serial #3227125

Starting out 2015 with the latest addition to my collection. This was a junker I was given I thought I'd use for parts, but it looked quite nice. Only one minor scratch in the right rear corner of the housing. But, and this was a big But. When the lock was released the carriage flew to the end of the line. Type slugs moved when keys were pressed. I wanted to repair it. Problem was it needed the escapement replaced. Well, 2 years later it is now a fine working typewriter. I really wanted another H3k. I wanted the typeface, Director Elite. Instead of using it for parts, like a few others, it was saved and is now a fine typewriter. Even though I prefer pica Director Elite is a nice clean font.
