1957 Hermes 2000 Serial # 2160526 1957 Hermes 2000 typewriter, Serial # 2160526 Septimus Clark's 1957 Hermes 2000 typewriter. 2021-02-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Septimus Clark: 1957 Hermes 2000 Serial # 2160526 I had been collecting machines for a while when I read that Tom Hanks was upbraided by a typewriter repair guy for owning a sub-par machine. "You want to buy a real machine?" so the story goes. He commenced to offer Hanks a Hermes 2000, and that did it for him - so of course I had to go out and find one for myself to see what all the fuss was about. Oh yeah.
