1962 Hermes Baby Serial # 5944436 1962 Hermes Baby typewriter, Serial # 5944436 Alexander Pearson's 1962 Hermes Baby typewriter. 2022-02-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alexander Pearson: 1962 Hermes Baby Serial # 5944436 Great little typewriter with a soft touch and light carriage shift. I prefer this early 1960s model over previous iterations that don't feature a ribbon selector. My only gripe is with the Baby is the puny carriage return lever, which is not very practical. This particular model has a Swiss keyboard. I'm used to German keyboards, so I was surprised to see that there's no way of writing capitalized versions of the umlauted letters "√ľ", "√∂", or "√§".
