1965 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3303735 1965 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 3303735 Harold Dodd's 1965 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2016-07-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Harold Dodd: 1965 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3303735 Outside looks REAL NICE.
Inside needs some REAL CLEANING, including the type. Will be taking this to Duane or Bill, as the details of these tiny characters needs a pro, not myself.

It is mandatory that you use at least TWO pieces of paper with this, as the type does cut through the paper, no matter how you set the touch settings.

I had researched this model, as there are LOTs of resources out there, and noted all the CONS to this typewriter that have been written by people who just flat out DESPISE it, and, I have to confess, everything they mentioned, including the cutting type, are all represented in this typewriter. I like the unit, however.

That nice margin line. It would have been nice if the Royal "Magic Margin" system had this.
