Picked up this Hermes Baby on a trip down to North Carolina for car parts (for my toy car, a 1992 Mazda Miata, after it got backed into).
As soon as I saw that there was a name, addresses, and other markings, in addition to all the factory paperwork, I couldn't help but buy it.
I have not yet confirmed this officially, but I believe this typewriter was once owned by a Binghamton University professor (art history department chair), who has done such lectures as "The Artist As Typographer" at the Guggenheim... Really should send that email sooner rather than later!
On top of this, if you take a minute to look through the additional photos, you'll see the nice dealer sticker above the right side of the keys... It reads "Distributed by R. H. Macy & Co. Inc. Herald Square, New York, N.Y." So while I'm not sure when, I do know where this machine was originally sold... The flagship Macy's store :) Very cool in and of itself.
