1977 Hermes Baby Serial # 9410138 1977 Hermes Baby typewriter, Serial # 9410138 Sam Rao's 1977 Hermes Baby typewriter. 2023-11-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sam Rao: 1977 Hermes Baby Serial # 9410138 I was lucky enough to get the popular version of Hermes Baby with a mint body and gull-wings ribbon covers but it ended up being my least favourite machine and I hardly write with it. Happened to find this white Hermes Baby with a bi-colour ribbon selector lever, but I didn't want to buy it since there was a Baby in my collection already. The typing feel of this machine however is a lot more pleasant and I kept thinking about it for a few weeks before heading back and buying it.

Note: Serial number is located in the bottom right corner after lifting the ribbon cover.

I'm a young(er) typewriter nut who doggedly pursued and waited for the day I'd buy a Smith-Corona to write with. The hobby is gradually becoming an obsession with newer members coming in :)



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