1970’s Working Hermes 305 – New Ribbon, Case – Wide Carriage – Made in Japan
Working Hermes 305 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the late 1970’s. Regardless of such old age, the Hermes typing machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, margin setters, the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This Japanese made typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is excellent. All of the keys type well, without sticking and the typewriter is fully functional. Minor signs of age and wear are present.
