1971 Hermes 10 Serial # 2020921 1971 Hermes 10 typewriter, Serial # 2020921 Joe Van Cleave's 1971 Hermes 10 typewriter. 2015-01-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Joe Van Cleave: 1971 Hermes 10 Serial # 2020921 Purchased for my brother as a graduation gift by my father, has been in the family ever since.

This is an electric machine, operates more like an electrified manual (has type basket, ribbon vibrator and moving carriage like a manual).

Types very nice, a person can touch-type very fast on this machine, but it makes lots of clunky solenoid noises; louder than most manuals.
