1949 Hermes 2000 Serial # 497005 1949 Hermes 2000 typewriter, Serial # 497005 Gerhard Schaufelberger's 1949 Hermes 2000 typewriter. 2024-05-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerhard Schaufelberger: 1949 Hermes 2000 Serial # 497005 Of all my typewriters this would be the one I'd take to the desert island. It belonged to a butcher, who obviously was a very diligent man. It feels like new and has a keystroke to die for. I call it Butch and I write on it on tuesdays (That's the day the Swiss butchers used to present the fresh sausages)
