1970 Hermes 3000 Serial # 70 19417 1970 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 70 19417 Nickolas Marinelli's 1970 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2021-09-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nickolas Marinelli: 1970 Hermes 3000 Serial # 70 19417 Funny story. A few years back I had a bromance with a guy who worked for the same company I did, but at a different location. When Christmas rolled around, I decided to observe a tradition that I've been doing since I was a kid: I would give my most prized possession to my newest friend. I chose this guy, and I chose my Hermes 3000. He was appropriately happy and overwhelmed by the gift. I told him that it was his to do with as he wished. He could write on it, sell it, give it away, or use it as a doorstop. He said he would treasure it always. A few months later, I was missing my favorite typewriter, so I went to the typewriter store and found one that looked just like the one I had given away. I bought it on the spot, took it home, and photographed it, noting its serial number. You guessed it: it was the typewriter I had given my new friend. Now that I've got about $1,000 in this thing, I think I'm going to hold on to it.
