1959 Hermes 2000 Serial # 2209493 1959 Hermes 2000 typewriter, Serial # 2209493 Mark Petersen's 1959 Hermes 2000 typewriter. 2017-03-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1959 Hermes 2000 Serial # 2209493 Purchased in Northern Virginia via craigslist for $50. This machine has a really nice typeface and would be great to type on except it has a skipping problem. I can sometimes type without it being so bad, sometimes even for a page with just one or two skips, but other times it skips every sentence or worse.
Made some adjustments per a recommendation on Richard's blog.
Sold.
