1961 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5892229 1961 Hermes Rocket typewriter, Serial # 5892229 Benjamin Esh's 1961 Hermes Rocket typewriter. 2024-05-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Benjamin Esh: 1961 Hermes Rocket Serial # 5892229 Hermes Rocket. No doubt one of my least used ultra portables. Very popular for some reason, yet it's prone to issues and types terribly. If you find one, make sure it's a good price, because it's not worth the comical prices these machines are sold for.

I'm a software engineer in the Chicagoland area. I've been collecting "vintage" vinyl, computers, mechanical keyboards and typewriters since I was a kid. Born into an analog world, but grew up in a digital one.

My wife is a writer and I enjoy problem solving and puzzles, so naturally fixing I fell in love with fixing and maintaining typewriters and she then gets to enjoy all of these machines!



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