1962 Hermes Rocket

Serial #5941236

Hebrew typeface. Great condition.
Types Right-to-Left.
Carriage return lever is on the left, but works opposite of the Latin version Rocket - the lever sits up against the platen knob, and you push the carriage to the left with it - as the lever is pushed to the left, it pivots left and indexes the platen one or two lines as you'd expect, based on the line spacing switch.

I love machines, machining, creating things from nothing. Typewriters have struck a romantic chord in me, thanks to my oldest son, and I am working with him and the rest of our family to acquire, restore, repair many machines.
Our collection grows in fits and spurts - as the seasons change. We make a lot of acquisitions at estate sales, yard and garage sales, thrift stores, online, and through personal connections.
The machines that we don't want to keep in our own collection, we are selling through various outlets - Etsy, Square Market, and eventually on eBay - and unlike some sellers, we KNOW how to pack a machine for shipment! :-)
Brumfield & Sons Typewriters, at your service.
