1960 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3079042 1960 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 3079042 LaDonna Qualtieri's 1960 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2023-12-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of LaDonna Qualtieri: 1960 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3079042 Restored by Andrew at Typewriter Rehab. I adore the Visible Flying Margins feature and Techno Pica typeface. The lock is missing from the case, as is common, so the case cannot be used as intended but to make up for that I bought one of Andrews thick typewriter pads and keep the machine covered yet visible with a clear vinyl cover. I actually found a later model boxy style with the same typeface that I like better. I sold this one to an aspiring novelist in 2023. Good luck Forrestt!

I have many pen pals and correspond via handwritten and typed letters. I have a (painful) sitting disability and type while standing- UPDATE! I can also type on an ultraportable I set up on my bed. Typing and collecting machines with different typefaces keeps me busy and happily distracted from the difficulties in life-fountain pens, too, and I can write legibly, in cursive, while laying down. Join me on Type Pals and register for the monthly postcard exchanges. The “Cat Mews” is a quarterly publication of the philatelic topical group Cats On Stamps Study Unit (COSSU), for which I am a column contributor. My cats are Wiffle Wizard and Urushi (Rushi) Blizzard, aka the Blizzard Sisters.
