1955 Hermes Ambassador Serial # 773997 1955 Hermes Ambassador typewriter, Serial # 773997 Richard Wood's 1955 Hermes Ambassador typewriter. 2017-05-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Wood: 1955 Hermes Ambassador Serial # 773997 - SOLD -

Typeface appears to be "Director-Elite" according to the Hermes Typeface Chart

Again, types by itself.

Extremely well made machine.

Platen removes in seconds and carriage has two bolts which are removed to allow removal of carriage.

This model is all setup for an electric conversion. It even has the power cord hole in the back.

I would wish mine had the carbon spools under the hood, but I am very lucky to own this as it is.
