1958 Hermes Media 2000 Serial # 2208339 1958 Hermes Media 2000 typewriter, Serial # 2208339 Erik Bruchez's 1958 Hermes Media 2000 typewriter. 2022-10-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Bruchez: 1958 Hermes Media 2000 Serial # 2208339 I got this Hermes Media for a song. The Media is the sibling of the 2000, without a tab and impression control. But it types incredibly smoothly! And this one, in green crinkle paint, and with the iconic green keys typical of the 3000, just looks great!

I have one issue to fix with the left platen knob which tends to move out and enable the platen variable when typing.

UPDATE: Left platen knob issue fixed. This machine types like a dream.

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.
