1956 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5520629 1956 Hermes Rocket typewriter, Serial # 5520629 Dalton Hutchins's 1956 Hermes Rocket typewriter. 2021-12-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dalton Hutchins: 1956 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5520629 I've been trying to track down a mid-50s Rocket for quite some time. This one needed (and still needs) some work. I love the feel of the keys and the gullwing covers. I was a little disappointed with how thin the metal body is. Not as stout as the Olympias, but it does weigh next to nothing...for a typewriter.
