1970’s Working Hermes 3000 Manual Portable Typewriter- New Ribbon, Case – Beige – A Paillard Product
Working Hermes 3000 vintage manual portable typewriter. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was manufactured during the early 1970’s.
Regardless of such old age, the machine works really well! The Hermes 3000 has smooth operating keys which are responsive and light, and it provides customisable functions to meet your requirements. The backspace key, carriage return lever, bell, shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), carriage release lever, paper guide and the paper release lever, all work as intended. The rigorous Hermes 3000 typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can start typing as soon as you get it. Also, it comes with the original case which has a comfortable carrying handle.
The Hermes 3000 is a product of the Paillard company, in Switzerland, which designed and manufactured popular Hermes typewriters with precision workmanship of the highest standard.
The overall condition of the typewriter is excellent. All of the letter keys work without sticking. Minor cosmetic signs of use and age are present.
The innovative Hermes 3000 typewriter would be ideal for writers and authors, especially in the creative field as it provides an elegant script typeface. It would also be a unique gift. Due to the style and the aesthetics of the Hermes 3000 typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
