1948 Hermes Baby Serial # 8085394 1948 Hermes Baby typewriter, Serial # 8085394 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1948 Hermes Baby typewriter. 2020-11-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1948 Hermes Baby Serial # 8085394 This typewriter has reminded me of two important things when buying online.

1) No typewriters is the same (this one doesn't type as well as my other Hermes Baby).
2) Look carefully to the images (don't get distracted by an almost perfect decal).

So, what's wrong with this Baby?

I live in The Netherlands.
Most common typewriter brands over here are Triumph/Adler, Olympia, Erika, Olivetti, Remington and Brother.
I collect and restore typewriters to learn about their design and to write with them.
