1954 Hermes Ruf Serial # 2064915 1954 Hermes Ruf typewriter, Serial # 2064915 Erik Bruchez's 1954 Hermes Ruf typewriter. 2019-07-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Bruchez: 1954 Hermes Ruf Serial # 2064915 I categorized this as Hermes "Ruf" based on two other examples in TWDB. The branding on the machine is "Ruf", but it is, of course, a Paillard machine.

This machine looks like a Hermes 200. I am not sure what difference justifies calling it a "Ruf", which I believe was a brand reserved for business.

This is a QWERTZ machine acquired in Switzerland.

I started collecting my first pre-WW2 standard typewriters in 2017. Since then I have added a few machines to my collection, which now ranges from the 1890s to the 1980s. As of 2020, I have more big standard (desktop) typewriters than portables, and a few standard electrics.
