1934 Hermes 4 Serial # 14430 1934 Hermes 4 typewriter, Serial # 14430 Georg Sommeregger's 1934 Hermes 4 typewriter. 2021-07-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Georg Sommeregger: 1934 Hermes 4 Serial # 14430 Relatively unknown to collectors, and probably not a spectacular machine, but it has a certain decorative charm. These days, not found so often in the wild, as the model 4 was only produced for three years, meaning a limited output thinned out in time.

It appears this specimen is missing its side covers. It's nice that the spool covers are preserved. As the rubber feet were missing, I replaced them with doorstops found in the local supermarket.
