1960 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5799252 1960 Hermes Rocket typewriter, Serial # 5799252 Ryan August's 1960 Hermes Rocket typewriter. 2018-07-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ryan August: 1960 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5799252 One of the last made of this particular model, made concurrently for five months alongside the dual-color ink model (according to the database), this is in lovely shape after cleaning and a little oiling. It's my first Hermes and probably not the last, as I love the feel of the keys and the typewriter itself. Was persuaded into finding one after all the hype by Mr. Hanks and well, virtually everyone else in typewriter-ville (and got a really good deal at the time). So far, it lives up to the hype- onward to a 3000 probably!

As a writer, I'm always looking for new ways to explore the craft, and now my addiction to old typewriters and finding ways to actually use them has greatly inspired me
