Hermes 3000 updated Thu, 31 Mar 2016
While poking at the H3000 galleries, I found a very late serial number that allowed me to approximate the serial list an additional 3 years to 1979. The sparseness of machine galleries between 1971 and 1979 seems unusual. Anybody got any boxy, plastic 3000's that you haven't uploaded yet?

Updated Voss serial number page Sat, 12 Mar 2016
Figured out I could extrapolate the 5 missing years from the Voss serial number list based on previous production and the high range of serial numbers shown in the Voss galleries, so did it! (:

Juniors have pages now! Sun, 31 Jan 2016
Went cleaning up the Bennetts and Juniors and found a Gescha Junior in the mix that I hunted down the correct category for. While I was there, I looked up what I could find for all three brands and compiled a couple of pages for them. Bennett, Junior and Gescha Junior pages are updated!

Woodstock updated again! Tue, 19 Jan 2016
We got to fine-tune some numbers and add more info to Woodstock in the 20's and early 30's thanks to some research into the Alger Hiss case by Robert Messenger.

Fox and Adler pages updated! Sun, 17 Jan 2016
Thanks to some great research by Tyler Anderson and Robert Godlieb, respectively. Fox just got a whole lot more interesting! (:
