1973 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7225765 1973 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 7225765 Erik Bruchez's 1973 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2024-03-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Bruchez: 1973 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7225765 Needs cleaning. Carriage a little rough. Good cosmetic condition.

2024-02-28: Fixed carriage. Like Olympias SM, some rubber washers can disintegrate, therefore lowering the carriage, causing friction on the body. Solution: open the machine and replace the washers. Machine has now also been cleaned properly. Who says that this version is not stylish? Not me!

2024-03-03: Added typeface sample. The machine types really well. It could do with a new platen.

I started collecting my first pre-WW2 standard typewriters in 2017. Since then I have added a few machines to my collection, which now ranges from the 1890s to the 1980s. As of 2020, I have more big standard (desktop) typewriters than portables, and a few standard electrics.
