1962 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3164197 1962 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 3164197 Julian Walkner's 1962 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2022-11-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Julian Walkner: 1962 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3164197 Update November 2022:
I am happy that this typewriter has found a good new home.
Now lives in Enfield, in a house where it gets the appreciation it deserves.


This Hermes 3000 looks like it came right out of the factory. No scratch or spot. Nothing.
It is wonderful to type on. When you hit a key you hear a sound that reminds me of a sharp scissor cutting through a piece of paper.
Oh, and look at this case! The chrome!
Is there anything I can complain about?
Of course! The Pica typeface...
I wish it were Director Pica

So that I don't have to write every word by hand when learning Italian, I bought my first typewriter. Now I am surrounded by 5 Olivetti machines ... they seem to be attracted to my new language skills. And because I quickly discovered my interest in different typefaces, I focused my collection on them. I currently have 23 different typefaces on 26 machines.
