1951 Hermes 2000 Serial # 2019456 1951 Hermes 2000 typewriter, Serial # 2019456 Mark Petersen's 1951 Hermes 2000 typewriter. 2017-04-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1951 Hermes 2000 Serial # 2019456 Excellent machine. It does pile sometimes (the opposite of skipping most 2000s do) but with careful typing that affect is minimalized. This machine is easily in my top 5 favorites, even having owned over 200. I never thought I'd enjoy a Hermes quite this much.
Came with no case, took one from another machine. This one and I are going places.

I painted the tops of some rusty Corona spools International Harvester Red.  I love how they look on this typewriter.  Subtle but a little extra flair on a machine which is fairly drab.
