1957 Hermes Baby

Serial #5568982

In the process of repairing this Baby for a friend, I found it interesting that it must have originally had the hard metal case - all the tell-tale scratch marks are there - but when he bought it the machine came in a nice Hermes soft case.

Something else that was just a little unusual: the space bar was painted black at some point, long ago I assume given the wear. Why would someone want to cover up that "sea foam" green? Possibly to hide worn paint I suppose.

French-Canadian keyboard.
