1966 Hermes 3000

Serial #3338472

Gorgeous "devil horns" paper supports.

I picked this up locally for $40. It's the closest to pristine as I've seen for a vintage typewriter. It includes the original instructions, in English and French, two pieces of onion-skin paper, and two Hermes branded brushes. The owner told me the family purchased it and then almost never used it and it had been sitting in its case for decades. This is almost new old stock, except for the paint splatters on the case. I love the case release on the right of the handle--clever. If I was only allowed five machines in my collection, this would be one of them.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
