1953 Hermes Rocket

A little rough and in need of some TLC, but such a light and quiet typewriter that I can't help but like it. The 8 and . key are both slightly melted, as if someone stuck something hot on them. Wasn't shipped to me with any protection, and I think the typebars and left gull wing spool cover took some damage at that time. My third Hermes!

A long-time fan of all things typewriter, I am truly delighted with the friendly people I find in the typosphere. Thank you.
In collecting, I believe I am trying to make it up to myself having given away the loyal Smith Corona that got me through college. Guilt is a strange thing.
The machine count is over 100, now... mostly portables, and lots of orphaned machines, both manual and electric, given to me by family and friends.
