Like new in box! Found at antique market in Cambridge, ON, so had to snag it. Original shipping box indicates that it was shipped to T. Eaton Co. (Eaton's) flagship store on St. Catherine Street in Montreal (I've been there!). With documentation. For a 1970's machine it types great and doesn't feel cheap.
Hunter: Currie Russell (Airportguy)

My father brought with him a Hermes Rocket when he emigrated from the UK to Canada in 1967 and I remember playing with it as a kid. This memory was reignited while I was in Montreal for work this past February and came across a stationery shop that had five typewriters in the window. When I got home, I went on the hunt for my first typewriter - caught the bug and haven't stopped!
