1972 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7200490 1972 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 7200490 Tas Kyprianou's 1972 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2023-01-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1972 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7200490 My 2nd Hermes 3000. Got REALLY lucky and scored the Techno Elite font variant. Sadly, I couldn't justify owning two 3000s so had to sell this one on.
I love how these machines look and handle and it's always difficult to stop actually typing on them. They deserve every ounce of their reputation.

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 40 machines. Nice round number. Time to stop I reckon. . .

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Hermes 3000 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Hermes Serial Number page and the Hermes 3000 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
