1956 Hermes Baby Serial # 5490479 1956 Hermes Baby typewriter, Serial # 5490479 Sebastian Kleinschmidt's 1956 Hermes Baby typewriter. 2020-08-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sebastian Kleinschmidt: 1956 Hermes Baby Serial # 5490479 This is my Hermes Baby from 1956 (serial number 5490479). When it came to me it looked already great but had a certain basement smell, which took quite some cleaning and airing in the sun to dampen down. It is now in a great working condition and types really well I think.

I'm a new (started in May 2020) typewriter collector from Germany and interested in various kinds of brands and types from pre- and post-WW2, particularly focusing on Seidel & Naumann (Ideal & Erika), Triumph-Adler and Smith-Corona U(my favourite brand!), although I own some other brands and am looking at some others (Voss, Royal, Remington). I particularly like portables, my favourite pre-WW2 typewriter being the Erika 5 and my favourite post-WW2 typewriter being my Smith-Corona Silent-Super.
