1961 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3092515 1961 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 3092515 Paul Musgrave's 1961 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2014-03-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Musgrave: 1961 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3092515 Hermes 3000, serial number 3092515. Obtained from eBay in February 2014. This is my 16th typewriter.

This typewriter was originally owned by John L. Kellogg of Mission, Kansas. It was purchased from his shop, Mission Office Equipment, on September 16, 1961 (according to the bill of sale that is still in the case). Mr. Kellogg owned this machine until his death in September of 2013. Being that it was owned by an office machine dealer, this Hermes 3000 was in very good condition when I purchased it. The only issue it has is the left ribbon in the flying margin, which has become stained (perhaps from some previous work done on the machine).

This Hermes has a Techno Pica typeface.
