1953 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5296668 1953 Hermes Rocket typewriter, Serial # 5296668 rock harris's 1953 Hermes Rocket typewriter. 2015-01-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of rock harris: 1953 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5296668 It's older than my other Rocket, but externally, it look a lot newer.

Externally.

Inside, it barely operates because there's so much crud and dust in there. I swear, I think it was left in a stockyard and was allowed to gather dust.

But still just beautiful.

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....
