1970 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7042729 1970 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 7042729 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1970 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2019-05-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1970 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7042729 This particular Hermes 3000 came to me as a gift from a colleague. His wife's parents bought it new in Baden, Germany while stationed there in 1970... apparently either the floor model or a custom order fitted with the Epoca typeface. The machine is effectively mint, both in colour and condition, and it types like the day it was new. It is in every regard exactly like the 3000 you might read about in blogs and webpages, and while it is not the favourite of the author, the respect the machine receives is well deserved.
These are the last of the steel & aluminum bodied H3Ks, as in 1971 they switched to a rather eccentric geometric plastic shell, and production moved around for a short while before settling on Hungary.
