1967 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3428267 1967 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 3428267 Sean Stevens's 1967 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2022-12-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sean Stevens: 1967 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3428267 1967 Hermes 3000 I got online from a close friend. In amazing condition, only needing a new drawband and new knobs (the yellow knobs are only a temporary fix, a special thanks to the school's IT director also for letting me and showing me how to use the school's 3D printer!). The platen is rock hard, although it is still 100% completely usable. I plan on replacing the platen soon, though, as I don't want to damage the type slugs in the long run. The paint job is nearly pristine, with only a few small chips across the whole typewriter/case. The person whom I bought this from also included a TON of Hermes and other typewriter-related goodies, which I have included some of those in this gallery to share!

Some of these goodies include the following:
- Warranty card from the original showroom. Only filled out with dealer info (Date of purchase, dealer). I plan to do some investigating on this dealer when I get the chance.
- Vintage second-gen. Hermes 3000 advertisement in impeccable condition.
- Cleaning brush for Hermes 3000. In great shape.
- Original, nearly flawless Hermes 3000 owner's manual.
- Letters from the original owner.
