1964 Hermes Rocket Serial # 6046081 1964 Hermes Rocket typewriter, Serial # 6046081 Jason Macdermott's 1964 Hermes Rocket typewriter. 2020-01-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jason Macdermott: 1964 Hermes Rocket Serial # 6046081 Isn't it funny how many 1964 Hermes Rockets seem to be missing their name badges? Did they switch to an inferior glue at that time???
At any rate, this is still a great unit to type on. It needs a little bit of loving attention, and the platen is about as hard as you would expect, but certainly still in very workable order.
I bought this from Sigma Typewriters in Hamilton, Ontario. There is more to that story if you click on the link.
