194X Hermes Baby Serial # 2###### 194X Hermes Baby typewriter, Serial # 2###### Benjamin Esh's 194X Hermes Baby typewriter. 2024-04-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Benjamin Esh: 194X Hermes Baby Serial # 2###### QWERZ Hermes Baby. It is in great condition for it's age. I generally need to fix a multitude of issues with many of my machines, but surprisingly, it was in complete working order when I bought it.

It has very light & snappy action, which makes it easy to write on. One feature I really enjoy on this machine is the "1/" button. You can combine it with any number to create a variety of fractions!

One other thing. I don't always use my typewriters on my lap, you know... Like a laptop. But when I do, it's with this machine! It's an enjoyable experience to lay on the couch and just type out your thoughts.

Strangely, a precious owner has scratched the S/N on this machine. I don't own any other typewriters with scratched S/N, so I don't know if this is unusual. I can only make out the first number "2". It has the body, logo and mechanics of a 1940-1942 Baby.

I'm a software engineer in the Chicagoland area. I've been collecting "vintage" vinyl, computers, mechanical keyboards and typewriters since I was a kid. Born into an analog world, but grew up in a digital one.

My wife is a writer and I enjoy problem solving and puzzles, so naturally fixing I fell in love with fixing and maintaining typewriters and she then gets to enjoy all of these machines!
