1959 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3007043 1959 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 3007043 G q's 1959 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2017-09-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of G q: 1959 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3007043 One of two 1959 Hermes 3000 that I own. Both of them are fully functional and well-maintained (by me) and the platens are in surprisingly very good condition. Note also, from the typeface sample, the not so common [ ] characters. The typeface is Director Elite (12 pitch).

Never heard of Hermes typewriters before Tom Hanks posted a picture online of his H3K in 2011 (somehow, I missed Larry McMurtry's 2006 Golden Globe speech). Those curves and that seafoam green! I'm into Fender electric guitars and a favorite was a Stratocaster in the same color. As luck would have it, a neighbor's yard sale had this typewriter for $30 not long after I saw Hanks's picture. Yeah, I need more days like that.

Started acquiring typewriters in 2006. But like any other thing I collect, I cannot stand having more than seven. Currently, I have exactly seven typewriters (I've given away a few).



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Hermes 3000 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Hermes Serial Number page and the Hermes 3000 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
